About this business

Opening times, reviews & more

The museum is home to over 90 buses. Midland Red, WMPTE blue and cream and the corporation fleets from Birmingham, Walsall, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton are all represented, plus independent operators such as Harper Brothers, Soudley Valley and Blue Bus of Willington.

We are also home to the largest collection of battery electric road vehicles, including over 30 electric milk floats and bread vans from operators such as the Co-op, Midland Counties and Birmingham and Handsworth Dairies

THE POWER HALL is our main display hall with an introductory video film and interpretative displays showing the development of public transport during the 20th century. Some of our rarer vehicles are on display here with explanatory information boards.

THE SHIRE HALL which has been recently extended, is home to more buses and our engineering area. On most weekends you'll find volunteers working on restoration or maintenance in this hall.

THE SCANIA HALL contains the Battery Electric display area, more buses and often has one or more buses undergoing a repaint in the far corner well away from any dust.

THE CAFE is open at weekends and on Wednesdays during local school holidays. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, biscuits, crisps and chocolate snacks are always available. On event days, the cafe is open from 11am to 5pm and freshly prepared sandwiches and homemade cakes are also available.

OUR SHOP is open from Easter Sunday onwards, at weekends and on Wednesdays during our local school holidays. We have gifts and toys for the kids and an ever changing, massive selection of books, models, timetables and other goods, both new and second-hand.

BUS RIDES are available all day on our main event days. During local school holidays on Wednesdays and Saturdays, a circular tour on a vintage bus runs at 1pm and 2:30pm.

For KIDS AND FAMILIES, we have our new 'Kids Kabin' activity area which has a selection of toys and activity sheets. There are also a number of interactive exhibits in the Power Hall.

THE MINIATURE TRAIN runs all day on our main event days. Occasionally it also runs on other days during the season depending on volunteer availability.

School Visits and groups are welcome; refreshments and an expert to escort you around can be provided if required. These visits can also be accommodated outside normal opening hours.

The museum is licensed as a bus operator and some exhibits can be hired for appropriate activities.
