Hi , I think this review is meant for someone else as cars are a small percentage of our museum's collection and we certainly do not have a castle.

Very nice museum Well maintained with a large number of exhibits. Not very big so tram and train rides not very long but interesting enjoyable visit. However a bit pricey for a small attraction.

Reasonably cheap day out. Had a ride on a tram and a trolleybus. Saw a few exhibits from yesteryear. The roadworkers section was easily the best. Not a bad effort on the part of the curators

Hi Stephen, Thank you for your praiseworthy review of the museum and we are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. We too look forward to the planned extention but this depends on how long it takes us to raise the required capital.

What a little gem. We spent a few pleasant hours at this transport museum taking rides on trolley buses and trams. Nice little cafe and lots of nostalgia.

On level ground it would be OK. To travel on the Buses and Trams would be difficult if you are not very good at getting around. The staff may be of help. (High steps on vehicles)
