  • What a great place! The volunteers here were more than helpful and knowledgeable. Don't miss the video running near the kids activity centre. Fascinating history of the city's WW2 experience.  more »

  • Went there as part of an Instagram group meet. Never been there before and was an excellent place to visit. So many of us were waiting outside the pick up place that they sent out a second bus to pick up the remainder. Everything public transport-related is there, from an old stagecoach to one of the first Manchester trams(circa 1990). There's a good cafe in site too which is very cheap by companion to other museums.
  • A great place to visit well organized and clean. Able to sit on several buses close your eyes and travel back in time by the old familiar smell of the bus. Brilliant 😀
  • Really nice and interesting but not worth £4 per adult when MOSI is free.
  • A hidden gem. If you're interested in transport history it's well worth the trip.
  • Very good museum lots off interesting facts and exhibits, very good and cheap little tea room also.

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
