The Museum of Transport tells the story of public road transport in Greater Manchester from the first buses in 1824 to the present day, with a collection of around 70 vehicles, mainly buses, and objects such as uniforms, badges, signs, ticket machines, etc. There is a substantial library and archive of documents, such as time and fare tables, maps and plans, reports, books and magazines, etc., and photographs and films. We are open to visitors all year round, on Wednesdays and weekends, and have a programme of outreach activities where our vehicles can be seen at community events.
General website at motgm.uk has a great deal of background information on our organisation.
How can people get involved?
We are always keen to welcome volunteers, and there is a wide range of activities in which to be involved - crewing vehicles, maintenance and repairs to vehicles or the building itself, operating the Shop or Tea Room, guiding and talking to visitors, preparing displays, or behind the scenes with administration.
