we visited on a 'running day'. Well cared for exhibits, enthusiastic staff and a good value café. entry at £7 with no concessions seemed a little steep but did include free rides on a variety of visiting buses. If transport is your thing its worth a visit but its not a theme park!

I went there a few months ago and the memories came flooding back. Looking at the old vehicles there from my childhood.There is also old pieces to look at including even bus tickets and the machines that was used! Also some great old photo's. Very interesting place.

Having quite a few vintage bus and car enthusiasts in the family, this was a must see. We were not disappointed. Whilst the enthusiasts wandered among and admired the well kept cars and buses, those of us less interested in the mechanics were transported back to our youth as we looked at the old tickets and machines. Even though there were very few people visiting the morning we went, we were still offered tea and coffee in the cafe which has the bonus of having old bus seats to sit on. The workshop was open and the staff in there were also friendly and willing to talk with visitors. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited this museum for the first time for their August Car Running Day and did not know what to expect. I was very impressed. The buses and other large vehicles were not in action today, but although the space inside was limited, you could get close to almost all the vehicles and there were good descriptions. The collection of vehicles and associated materials was amazing - as were the facilities they have built for looking after and conserving them, especially considering that it is entirely volunteer run. Those on duty were very friendly and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. I shall certainly return on November 4th 2017 for their bus running day. However, on the day of this visit they were offering rides (quite substantial ones, and free) in a range of classic cars - from an Austin 7 to a Ford V8 Woody, an ex-Mayoral Austin 18 and a splendid SS (Precursor of the Jaguar). On practicalities - the toilets were clean and most parts of the museum were accessible to wheelchair users. The small cafe was friendly and amazingly cheap - but in the absence of suitable thngs for lunch, my friend and I had afternoon tea twice! The home-made cakes were to die for! Perhaps the same cooks could make some pasties and sausage rolls for next time? The museum would be worth visiting even on static days, but I shall be returning for running days. One finmal thing - thye are having ongoing problems with the local authority over the provision of direction signs to the museum. It is NOT easy to find unless you have SatNav - but well worth the effort!

We spent a couple of hours here. If you are interested in vintage vehicles then this place is well worth a visit. There was a quiz for younger children to do and admission was £5 for adults and children were free.
