  • A hidden gem full of Nostalgia. A magic little bus depot showing Manchester transport over 200 years. Great example of Horse drawn up to modern buses. Everything from advertising to the bosses office....  more »
  • It was great to see the local buses of yester-year at this museum along with other transport from past years. Highly recommend this museum if you have an interest in this type of history.  more »

  • If you love buses then this place is definitely worth a visit. Set in the location of typical bus station, exhibits range from the very old to the modern staff really friendly too
  • This is great value for money. Kids are free so you only pay for the adults. There are lots of buses and a model tram the kids can go in and out of. There's actually lots to read and see if you are able to (I.e. not with two small boys). Interesting film footage of Manchester in the Second World War and of buses. The canteen does a proper mug of tea. On the special event days such as the model railway exhibition there are free bus rides too.
  • Loads and I mean loads of busses over 2 huge exhibit halls. From early frot engine single and double deckers, through to war to the modern super tram. Very good value for money, lots to look at and read and they have a small cafe too.
  • A pleasant place to visit for both young and old. School visits and tours are welcomed by prior arrangement. The tea room offers the usual tea, coffee and fizzy drinks with a selection of hot and cold snacks.
  • I have visited the Museum of Transport on a few occasions. The vast array of Buses of different companies throughout the North West including North Western Road Car Company, Selnec, and GM Transport. Keep up the good work.
