Great little museum!!
Oct. 2021
What a lovely little museum! Made to feel very welcome by all the volunteers - we, and our young grand daughter, travelled on the trams, the trolley bus and the train, wandered around the exhibits, dressed up in the costumes, ate in the cafe and bought some mementoes in the shop.

Reasonably priced entry, and the cafe and gift shop prices are also very affordable. (a pot of tea for two, two large cakes, a soft drink and packet of crisps, was two thirds of the price of the two cappuccinos and a squash we'd had earlier in our caravan park!)'

We will definitely be returning !

Wonderful time
Sep. 2021
We got the X22 from Norwich bus station, runs every half hour, the stop is right outside the museum. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Museum has a cafe, retail outlet.
Easy to walk round, there are other buildings to see e.g. garage as well as the star attractions - the trams and trolley buses. Rides are available on some vehicles plus the miniature railway.

Fantastic day out
Sep. 2021 • Couples
This is an excellent day out. A really lovely place with lots of ride on vintage trams, trolley buses and a railway. All run by volunteers who do an amazing job and are very enthusiastic. There is a lovely cafe which is very reasonably priced and also a gift shop. It is not expensive to get in and if you are able to do a gift aid you get a free return ticket for up to a year. Cannot wait to return and definitely well worth five stars.

A great day out we found while on Staycation in Suffolk
Sep. 2021
Came here 5 years ago and returned on Sunday 20th September 21 as we were again staying in Warner's Gunton Hall resort near Lowestoft. We took many free rides on all the trams and the little railway which now goes into a new under construction station after the museum has bought a new field since we visited last.
We took many photos and really enjoyed our day out visiting again.
One of the tram conductors was telling us that he wished more people would start to visit again as they need so much more money before they can complete all they want to do in the new field they have great plans when they have the money to finish them all. So come on guys this is a great place for all ages and the ticket price includes free parking although it isn't a big car park so come as soon as it opens to get a space maybe.
So take a look at our photos and then make sure you come for a visit soon.
As we bet you leave happy you did John & Sue Eastbourne UK

Transport museum visit
Sep. 2021 • Couples
We looked online for local attractions and found brochure after for the East Anglian transport museum near Lowestoft, we didn't pre-book even though it is only open once a week , because it's run by volunteers, it was easy to find, the car park was free, it was very olde worlde , the trolley bus and trams were just inside the entrance, the rides were very nice and authentic, the miniature railway was a lovely trip, the old buses and the steamrollers etc were very interesting ,there was a cafe and the staff were very informative , it is a lovely afternoon out

Couldn't have loved it more ❤
Sep. 2021 • Family
Literally couldn't have loved this place more. My 2 year old is obsessed with vehicles but because of covid he hasn't been on a train or a tram yet. We loved riding around on the train, trams and trolleybus and there are so many other vehicles to see, he was absolutely in his element. The staff were so friendly and the price was well worth it. We spent 2 and a half hours there.

Super way to spend a few hours.
Sep. 2021
Visited recently. Found the whole place charming. All staff were helpful and friendly. Considering most staff are volunteers, they are doing a superb job. Tram and Trolley bus rides are excelent, and also the miniature railway. Admission price reasonable, and all rides are free after paying. Lovely small tea room, and gift shop. If in the area would recommend a visit.

Small but all the better for it.
Sep. 2021
My husband and I had a brilliant afternoon at this wonderful atmospheric museum. With its working trams, trolley buses and train, old garages filled with an array of vehicles, it filled us with warmth and nostalgia. Many people were enjoying this museum and riding on the vintage transport.
It is a shame that it is only open two afternoons a week as it is very busy and with only limited parking it can be a struggle to park.
We would recommend to vehicle buffs of all ages.
