  • Visited on an event weekend. Lots of vehicles running and lots of activity plus free shuttle bus to local rail/bus station. A lot to keep you occupied for several hours for a relatively small museum. All staff enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. Sensibly priced throughout.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff. The whole museum was a delight for someone of my age who used that form of transport on a daily basis in their younger days. Being able to ride on a trolleybus again was a real pleasure.
  • Visited the museum yesterday with grandchildren aged 12, 9 and 2 years. We took our own picnic but there was a nice little cafe. Plenty to do for a few hours at a very good price. Nice rides on trams and trolleybuses.
  • An amazing experience despite the tramway being truncated because of tract repairs on the woodland section. Three different trolleybuses running and the narrow gauge railway. Steam on the road exhibition was excellent. Return visits free of charge and we'll certainly be back!
  • Fantastic day out for young and old alike. Tram ride, trolleybus ride and train ride all in one place and unlimited too. The exhibitions are brilliant and the team are very welcoming. They even do a mean cup of tea in the tea rooms.
