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!

Museum Opening Times

Please note that in line with current Government advice on covid-19 the museum is currently closed. Watch this space for further updates.

Museum Admission

Museum entry is FREE*, however we do kindly ask that visitors give a small voluntary donation if they are able. This helps us to continue to support and develop our celebration of Lancastrian heritage.

Please note that no dogs are allowed into the museum except official guide and assistance dogs.


Due to current restrictions, Bury Transport Museum is unable to run any education visits until 2022. We hope to see you again then.
