We popped into the museum having found ourselves in the vicinity with some time to spare. A nice collection of buses, coaches, motorcycles, pedal cycles, lorries and cars in generally excellent condition with some undergoing restoration. Worth a visit!

Good collection of buses, lorries & cars the bulk of which are presented in very good condition. There's a working garage with more vehicles which are in various stages of restoration. In addition to the vehicles there a plethora of interesting memorabilia. A friendly welcome & amazing use of the available floor space !

A great museum with loads of interesting vehicles that are well preserved. There is a car that my father owned that brought back happy memories. The petrol cans and spark plugs that were in our garage were displayed at this gem of a Museum.

reat little museum with plenty of good exhibits and having gone on a day when free bus rides were being given in to the city was a bonus. Given 4 instead of 5 stars because of a couple of things which marred an otherwise enjoyable afternoon. I might suggest a few words to the wise....
My partner and I were witness to what appeared to be an unofficial committee meeting hosted by a rather officious man, who obviously considered himself somewhat senior to the others (he may well have been) and began by him strutting about calling out to people to 'gather round we need to discuss where we're at' and mentioned something about issues. This 'meeting' took place in full view of the public at the front of the museum in the large open space in front of the exhibits as you go in. It culminated in what we assume to be a volunteer member being given quite a severe dressing down regarding his activities, appearance and hygiene which we felt was both rude and unnecessary. The volunteer in question had spoken to us previously and we noted nothing wrong in either his appearance (which was smart/casual) or his hygiene. We can't comment on what activity he had embarked upon which transgressed the rules so badly.
My partner sat as a trustee for an extremely well known and large transport collection for a number of years and while he is aware that all organisations have some dirty linen, it is always best to wash this far away from the public gaze.
One last point, we had reason to enter the cafe (to pay for something) at around 4pm - it was filled with what we assumed were volunteers and members who seemed to have the attitude that it was closed and we were not welcome. It would surely have been better to have a closed sign up if that was indeed the case (bearing in mind the bus was still running).
