Not the largest vintage transport museum around, but that's reflected in the modest entrance fee (which doubles on special events day). Adequate ladies loos but extremely basic outdoor portaloos for the gents - who form by far the greatest number of visitors!

Excellent. If you like old cars and especially buses, then this museum is a must to visit. The restoration of the vehicles is first class and mainly done by volunteers. Many vehicles have been used in tv or films or are used at big events....More

If you are an old bus geek then you may enjoy yourself, otherwise it takes about 20 minutes to walk around. it can be incorporated with a visit to Whisby nature park if you have a car

We dropped in here after visiting Doddington Hall, as the SatNav showed it was nearby. It is a large building crammed full of old vehicles. Plenty of nostalgia and memories. Apart from the vehicles, which included a considerable number of buses, there is automotive paraphernalia...More
