The Wellington Cable Car Museum
I thought a good place to start taking my photos was at the Cable Car Museum.
I love coming here.
I wish that the old cable cars were still in service.
The cable cars are really called grip cars.
The museum is in the original winding house.
The winding house was going to be demolished when they put in the new cable car system but instead restored it to become the museum.

The Famous Wellington Cable Car
Heaps of Wellingtonians use the cable car every day to get to work, home, the nearby university and of course loads of tourists get the cable car up from the city to have a look at the very cool view of Wellington city and also to then have a walk through the Wellington Botanic Gardens which is one of my most favourite places.
I love coming here!!!!
