We went to this on the tram from the nearby frost fair. Loved the tram rides. Hadn't realised that some trams had an upstairs. Can see so much more from upstairs. The museum was good. However we were with a 2 year old and although she showed interest in some of it, at that age most children do not have... More

We went to the tram museum, me and my 12 year old. It was our fist trip to the museum The place is only the size of a small warehouse but well worth a visit. It's packed from floor to ceiling with old trams and some classic beautifully restored motorbikes well worth a look. There is a medium sized table... More

We decided to take our 5 year old nephew to see the trams. Although he enjoyed the trams and model railway, we were very disappointed in the catering. No drinks for children, no eats or catering for children - just either tea or coffee. Aside from losing potential revenue from children's catering, it made the while catering effort look quite...

We were to go over the water on the ferry but both boats out of action so no ferries running. There was a tram outside the ferry terminus so we hopped on for a ride. We were very pleasantly surprised to be charged only £2 for an all day ticket!. We got off at the museum, which was free, and... More

We were to go on the ferry, but it wasn't running and we stumbled upon Transport Museum. Caught the tram from Woodside to the museum (easiest way to find museum). It has an interesting local collection of buses and trams plus information on the walls. Also an interesting model railway. Caught the tram back to Woodside. All good value, tram... More

An interesting museum with plenty of displayed items. Enlightening to read the letters sent to women working in transport after the war requesting them to leave their jobs to provide work for returning soldiers. A nostalgic view of an old garage and an individual 's workshop donated to the museum complete with his oily overalls. Short tram rides are available.

We visited here as part of The Wirral Bus & Tram Show on 2nd October. It was a well organized event and we really enjoyed exploring the museum which was also being used by a number of Trade Stands selling books, models, photos and any other memorabilia related to Trams, buses, trains, ships and more. Many of the Trams were... More

A well laid out little museum, made more interesting and relevant by the very helpful volunteers who were extremely willing to share their knowledge and experience. Extremely good value at £2.00 for the tram ride to the Ferry Terminal and back then free entry to the museum. A credit to the work of the volunteers.

Thank Andykeithharris
