    Wonderful, 'living' museum. Great for all the family, not just transport 'geeks'. Exhibits trigger long lost memories of public travel from childhood. Unique souvenirs (actual pieces of transport history!) on sale too. Very knowledgeable volunteers too.

    Well worth a visit. You can board most of the buses and the volunteers are very helpful and willing to answer any questions. There's a kids playroom, a shop selling model buses and a cafe where you can have tea on a bus. If you buy the guide book you get a postcard, a car sticker and a voucher for a free drink in the cafe. Kids and big kids will love it!

    Fantastic. Great for a calm afternoon and lots to learn. Being able to go on the buses were brilliant too.

    Informative and fascinating, with both a wide selection of buses and other ephemeral, alog with a childrens area. Can be busy on event days.
