The industrial heritage of the North West is brought to life before your very eyes at Bury Transport Museum. Through stunningly restored vehicles, original artifacts and interactive exhibits, your family can explore the lives and jobs of people in the early 20th Century.
There is plenty to keep both adults and children entertained, whether that’s discovering the horse drawn tram that was once a chip shop, learning about how “Hilda” the steam roller almost met her end, meeting the bus with a history in movies or taking a look around the smallest museum inside of a museum in the UK!
