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

Very interesting.... Cool stuff here
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.
