Thanks for the review; the problem is that, in an unsuitable rented building, there is a limit to what we can do about the layout and organising - why not volunteer with us and make some suggestions? We'd always welcome more help! There is a...More

Some interesting old buses ( one of which you can ride) and memorabilia from the tram/ trolleybus/ old bus era of Birmingham. Small shop and no cafe or tea room which is a shame as this would make some much needed money for the venue!...More
