A ride down memory lane. I defy anyone to say they haven't had memories stirred by at least one of the magnificent buses so wonderfully displayed. A great day out for all the family!

I have been several times it just gets better each time with more restored old buses for a nostalgic day out it's worth a trip. The work that goes into restoring these buses is first class with all the dedacated. members .

Lovely day out. Staff very helpful. Parking great. Childrens activities. Interesting stalls. All very child friendly disability aware but on off of the buses difficult but possible. Toilets, changing facilities, all good. Food available from cafes and stalls. Altogether a fun day with added bonus of TRAINS two trips up and down short lines soon to be extended, round the whole site one day!

As an ex bus driver I’m slightly biased here, but this place is a must for those that enjoy classic buses that you may have driven or got on to go places years ago. Seeing these buses so lovingly restored and in a lot of cases still running brings back good memories. I’ve been attending the running day that signifies the end of the museum season for a number of years now and I’ve met up with old work colleagues that I haven’t seen for years at these times. A lot of reminiscing ensued, there are various sheds around the site and these are filled with buses, some in running order and some in the process of getting restored, this museum is a must see especially on running days when there is also stalls that the closet spotter can pick up a bargain on model buses as well. There’s a cafe also that do filled rolls and cups of tea/coffee and snacks, all the staff are very informative and friendly and happy to chat about the bus museum and the history of their exhibits. The site is also wheelchair friendly although bear in mind that on there is a hill at one point.

The Scottish Vintage Bus Museum is now the biggest in the World and the August 17th/18th Open days were an annual joy.Starting with the free shuttle Vintage Bus from Dunfermline you are soon at the SWW Naval Stores depot.Admission was £8 or £6 Conc and £2 programme.As a former conductor with W Alexanders (Fife) late 1960s early 1970s my eyes were soon moist seeing my old ticket machine,cap badge,ticket clipper,uniform .The cafe was as warm and welcoming as the informative volunteer staff.It was wonderful to tour the exhibition hall,workshops,archive building,museum souvenir shop and join a guided tour all rounded off with the creaking Vintage Bus trip to the Forth Road Bridge ,surrounded by the voices of many foreign lands.Come oan,get aff!!
