  • I love the museum! A very enjoyable afternoon out. Well displayed exhibits and the buses were brilliant and all the volunteer staff are lovely.

  • Fantastic place to visit, large collection, can go on some of the buses to look round.
  • Extensive collection of Greater Manchester buses from over the years, as well as the mock-up Metrolink tram. Sadly the collection isn't curated brilliantly and is more for looking at than interacting with, but if you're interested in transport, it's still worth checking out.
  • Really enjoyed my day there and my son had a whale of a time he loved it. Would defo recommend if your into transport.
