The Power of History

From the 27th of October to the 2nd of November over 1 000 grade five and nine learners from schools in George were treated to a tour of the Transnet Transport Museum. The museum, which fulfils the Transnet Foundation’s Heritage Preservation Unit’s objective to preserve its assets of historical significance, is a stalwart of the South African railway industry. 


This was a first time visit for 99 percent of the kids and from what we observed they really enjoyed the visit. There was a lot of excitement,” confirmed Kobus Volschenk, Manager of the Museum. “The learners showed a keen interest in what we are doing at the museum, especially with regards to the technical side of steam trains and how they work. It was very encouraging to witness the number of questions asked, and the thirst for more information. It is satisfying to have made a difference in the lives of 200 kids in one day, and we are convinced that they will remember this outing.”
