The tram rides are always good fun, love it! Downside is the price for an awful cheap hot chocolate! £2 each and tasted... More

As one or two others have reviewed, this is a relatively small attraction nestled in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft, Suffolk. Space is at a premium and they do cram in rides on buses and trams but due to lack of space the rides are very short. There not many hands on things for young children. As for an adult, yes fun...

A trip on a tram or trolley bus and to wander around the static displays was just so enjoyable.Once you've paid to get in all the rides are free, what more could you want. The staff were so friendly and helpful if you have a question to ask.

Many exhibits showing history of transport through the ages ( excellent for mechanical bods!!!) You can hire an old fashioned double decker bus for weddings special occasions etc. The museum is a little way from the sea and close to Carlton marshes so it could be a two place day out!! For not too much money

Brilliant day out with the family. Lots of vehicles including working trolley buses and trams to ride on (included in the ticket price). There's a small railway as well. Nice short walk in the woods and lots of other interesting exhibits. The café is great too. Plenty of parking, so no worries there.

We visited this place in May. The transport exhibits were really well restored. Lots to do and see. Not too expensive. There is a cafe on site. Only downside is that they are only open to visitors on certain days so would advise obtaining their timetable before going.

Cost £30 for a family of 4, we had seen it all and had all the rides 40 minutes later. All the rides are very short, there are a few other exhibits, but it's not great value for money.
