Visitor information in detail...

Between the 25th of March to the 29th October 2017 we are open at weekends from 11am to 4.30pm
We are also open on Wednesdays 11am to 4.30pm during school holidays

What's to see and do

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. Click here for a complete list of our bus exhibits

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. Click here for a complete list of our battery electric exhibits

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 and one or more buses undergoing a repaint in the far corner well away from any dust

THE SCANIA HALL contains the Battery Electric display area and more buses.

THE CAFE is open from 11 to 4.00pm at weekends, and on Wednesdays during 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. 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. On event days, the shop is open from 11am to 5pm. Click here to visit our online gift shop

BUS RIDES are available all day on our event days. In school holidays a classic bus service runs at 1.00pm and 2.30pm on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

For KIDS AND FAMILIES, we have a family ticket and our 'Kids Kabin' area has a selection of toys and activity sheets. There are also a number of interactive exhibits in the Power Hall. On the first Saturday each month we run the Wythall Junior Club where kids between 8 and 16 years can get involved in the museum.

THE MINIATURE TRAIN runs all day on our event days. Occasionally it runs on other days during the season depending on volunteer availability. see their website for further details

Finally, there's a grassed picnic area and free parking.
