Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a great museum within a museum at Brooklands and well worth allowing time to view the buses and associated paraphenalia. We loved that so many of the buses had destination close to our home!

Once you have paid for Brooklands this museum is free. Very interesting for all ages. Nostalgic buses and more modern ones. Over half of which you can get on and explore. Good indoor play are for small children. Well priced gift shop with good range of products for most ages.

Such a wonderful collection of vehicles on display. The buses were very well turned out and kept with a nice balance of ages. The collection of support vehicles is also a nice to see as so often these work horses are forgotten. We enjoyed our ride on the Route master as well.

Last year we went on a vintage bus ride organised by this museum so we decided to come and have a look whilst visiting Brooklands. There are many beautiful vehicles to see although most you can't get into. Nevertheless it is wonderful to take a trip down memory lane and see so many beautifully restored vehicles.

Really lovely relaxed day out, at the Spring event. Very enjoyable circular bus trip, to Weybridge and back. Good assortment of visiting buses. Many stalls selling models, pictures, books, and memorabilia.

The actual museum is well laid out, and interactive for kiddies.

One particular highlight for my son, was the enthusiastic, friendly, and funny entertainment provided by Professor Crump!

Excellent collection of buses through the ages and chance for children to experience the driver’s seat, as well as take a 30 minute bus ride out of the museum to Weybridge/Walton. Part of the excellent Brooklands Museum - all so good we signed up for membership.
