Are we there yet?
Revolutions is much more than the State's only land transport heritage museum - it is an engaging exhibition that showcases the far reaching impact that our transport choices have made, and are making, on Western Australian lives and landscapes.
Open your eyes to some of the fascinating land transport heritage stories, ideas and developments that have shaped our past and will impact on our future.
Within the exhibition, a mini-movie starring the character 'Rev' is played in the theatrette, exploring various aspects of the land transport story. Revolutions is also home to the Whiteman Collection, antique machinery and curios that were collected by the Park's namesake, Lew Whiteman.
