The museum is tucked away but well worth finding. The volunteers pack a lot of different exhibits into a relatively small space - all very interesting. Staff were as friendly as ever. My grandson didn't want to leave.

Went here with a friend. What a hidden gem, definitely worth visiting. Plenty of old vehicles, military and buses. Other memorabilia too. Reasonably priced

The Museum may not be the biggest in the Midlands but you will find it hard to beat it for friendliness. Visit on a running day and ride a variety of buses for the cost of the admission.

While this may not be the largest motor museum in the world, it is a window to a time when public transport was a much more pleasant experience. Don't be put off by the modern industrial unit that houses it it's a fantastic place if...More

We visited this museum - now called the Aldridge Transport Museum - on a wet dreary day and were relieved to find it was all indoors and all on one level. It really is a delightful place, full of interesting objects connected with transport. There...More

Thanks for coming and for the review. We'd love the museum to be a bit less hidden, as the sign on the main road is hard to see, and we're pursuing that now. Do come again!
