Bury Transport Museum

The industrial heritage of the North West is brought to life before visitors very eyes at Bury Transport Museum

Bury Transport Museum is housed within a Grade II listed ex-railway warehouse that dates from 1848. Restored to its former glory, it now houses a collection of vintage vehicles including buses, steam rollers and trams.

Hands-on interactive exhibits explain the development of transport in the Northwest, how the Goods Warehouse was used and the types of materials that would have been handled here.

Purpose-built education rooms and outside picnic area for use by school groups.

The museum is geared towards families and there will be a varied events programme throughout the year. There's even a bus simulator to test your driving skill! Fully accessible for visitors in wheelchairs with easy access from the dedicated parking spots.

Working in partnership with other local attractions, such as the Fusilier's Museum and Bury Art Gallery and Museum, they use the outside area as a community exhibition space.

Open Wednesday to Sunday and Bank Holidays, 10.00am - 4.00pm.
