    We visited the museum with our young grandson, he was fascinated by the workings of the trolley bus, narrow gauge railway and trams whilst we relived a previous era. The staff who were all volunteers ...  more »

    One has to be charitable because this is run by volunteers and expensive to maintain. It is very interesting but limited in scope. It is more for transport nerds than for amusing the young for very lo...  more »

    Arrived ten mins early, it does not open until midday. We had an interesting chat with the ticket staff. Not a large site but well laid out. We had rides on a narrow gauge railway, a tram and a trolle...  more »

  • If you like your inter-war public transport, this is the place for you. Plenty of trams and buses to explore and ride, all run by knowledgeable volunteer enthusiasts. Recommended family day out
  • Took my family of boys they loved riding all day on the trams train and trolley buses, which run one after another all day...think we got 7 rides but could have got a lot more. Had picnic in the woods. Great little cafe and gift shop. The volunteers work very hard. Good displays. You can go back as many times as you want through out the year with your ticket. No point comparing it to Crich as it is smaller but still packs a punch! Both are unique sites in their own right and cater for everyone's tastes.
  • A great place for a family day out!!! one entry price and ride all day. Trams, trolleybuses and even a small train. One of the rare museums that has more to ride and interact with than static display. Kids will love hopping on and off the vehicles. Also if you gift aid you entry fee you can come back for free all year!!!! Now that's value.
  • Visit on 25/05/2017 And thoroughly enjoyed it, it not massive but we'll worth the visit there few buildings with lots of information and vehicles under restoration. Included in the price you get to ride on a tram, trolley bus and a train, There is a small tea room and souvenir shop. There is a disabled toilet and 4 disabled parking bays. The on site parking is limited but free.
  • Very nice place to spend a summer afternoon. Lots of exhibits, and you can ride on the trams and narrow gauge train. There's a good cafe and gift shop too.
