Hero image for this day out

Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester


If you fancy a really interesting, unusual and enjoyable day out, why not pay a visit to the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester? It's just like taking a trip back in time as you wander through one of Britain's biggest collections of restored buses, coaches and trams.

Your amazing time-travelling journey will take you all the way from an elaborately painted Victorian open-top horse drawn bus, to the streamlined prototype of Manchester's Metrolink tram. In between you'll be able to see and sit in fascinating vehicles that range from early trams, trolley buses and even the 'charras' that took Manchester folk on their outings to the coast and countryside.

The museum is located within a genuine bus garage and features transport offices preserved like time capsules from the past, complete with original decor and furniture. There are also lots of smaller memory-joggers like old ticket machines, uniforms, timetables and photographs.
