This is a nice museum run by enthusiasts. If you love old forms of transport, then you will like this place. I'd advise to take a packed lunch as the cafe is slow and the food is poor unless you like very basic cafe food....More

Like many voluntarily supported museums this one should be better supported by the local authority. Its dedicated staff are hard working and probably under appreciated by the community. I was really impressed by their enthusiasm, knowledge and helpfulness. The exhibits are wonderful and the rides...More

An excellent museum run by enthusiastic and knowledgeable people. Good value too. It specialises in items which have a local connection, especially buses, trams, lorries etc. There are only a few cars. Plenty enough to occupy 2/3 hours, and many people might want a return...More

Absolutely intriguing museum with very friendly and informative volunteers. Well worth a visit but has limited opening times so worth checking before visiting. We easily spent three hours looking around and it's great for children as it's interactive.
