Museum of Transport Greater Manchester

The Museum tells the story of public road transport in Greater Manchester from its very beginnings in 1824 to the present day. The collection spans over 100 years, from an 1890s horse bus to a full size prototype Metrolink tram.


The Museum is based in one of Greater Manchester’s earliest bus garages, adjoining Manchester’s first electric tram depot: Queens Road (opened in 1901). Many of our restored buses are maintained in roadworthy condition by our volunteers and can be driven on public roads. Throughout the year we hold a number of events which often give people of all ages an opportunity to travel on some of our historic vehicles.
