The building itself is enough to justify a visit- its very striking. There's plenty to look at -covering different types of vehicles- bikes, cars, motorbikes, buses. There also a mock up of an old fashioned street. Definitely worth visit

Went there 11/7/18 with the family,can’t believe it’s free you can also get access to the Tall ship,also cafe inside if your hungry or thirsty, but that’s not free. Takes you back in time well worth a visit.

An excellent museum which is also free. I don't feel that you even need to love transport to enjoy this great museum.

Love this museum especially the old street and being able to sit on the old underground train. During summer months they have a free beach area out the front which is very realistic as attracts expensive ice cream van.
