Memories. They are brought back when viewing some of the exhibits, especially the buses. Pity the place is so cramped. Full marks to restorers of all the vehicles. The workshop provides some insite to the level of commitment and challenges faced.

Small but packed with a large variety of cars and buses from yesteryear. Access to the inside of some of the buses. Plenty of photos and information on display. If you can catch one of the volunteers working in the restoration shop, they are a wealth of information on the history of the vehicles!

The museum is located on the edge of Lincoln and easily accessible from the ring road or by public transport from the centre. I visited on the Easter event day (another event day is held towards the end of the year) when museum and visiting buses were running free services and short tours and had a great day. Car rides...

Lovely little museum on the outskirts of Lincoln, staffed by volunteers doing a fabulous job rescuing and restoring some very interesting vehicles. There are cars, motorcycles and other memorabilia, but it is the buses that are the stars! Lots of different types, from 30s charabancs to buses of the 90s. The building is crammed with vehicles, and space is at... More

Visited here a while back on an open day. I enjoyed looking at the old vehicles and it brought back many memories of childhood. Loved the journey on the old bus into Lincoln and back. Great for children and adults.

If you visit this museum try to arrange it for either Easter Sunday or the first Sunday in November each year, as the vehicles are brought out for the public to ride in.

Not the largest vintage transport museum around, but that's reflected in the modest entrance fee (which doubles on special events day). Adequate ladies loos but extremely basic outdoor portaloos for the gents - who form by far the greatest number of visitors!
