Very good transport museum well worth a visit. Check opening times on website as it is run by volunteers and only open at weekends. Events are held on which busses are running on some of the original routes.
Fantastic collection of old vehicles with wonderful staff. Sadly no trams though. Excellent displays and examples of buses and other vehicles through time. A lot of warrington stock too.
It's not a big place but if you love buses and transport you will enjoy this place. I have been a few times, the latest with my neice who liked to go on the buses.. Don't expect hours and hours but a good visits.. Lots of extra things too look at
I recommend anyone who is interested in transport to visit this museum. I went on a classic car day which was interesting and there are lots of interesting buses. Admission is not expensive and they usually have rides through the town on elderly buses. For those people who are interested in model railways the Rainhill Model Railway Society meet there and there are a good number of working layouts. There is a massive layout, mainly to entertain the kids (pictured)
Mostly buses but that is no bad thing. They have some very unique buses and you can board most of them. My children loved exploring the place. It isn't a very polished museum experience but again that is no bad thing either.
An amazing selection of buses! Plenty you could get on. Great value for money.
Great day out lots of different types of vehicles to be seen. Pleasant staff very helpful. Lovely refreshment van.
I live nearby and I'm sick of Sundays being ruined by buses coming in and out of the depot almost constantly with their noisy motors and diesel fumes. Today (March 4th) it's been almost non stop for over five hours. It really shatters the peace of a Sunday afternoon.
Nice little walk through history, seeing how buses have changed over the years. The cafe is worth a visit too!
