I visited with two children age 5 and 9. Understandably you could not go onto many of the vehicles. Instead we were given some fantastic 'safari' puzzles where the children had to go around the museum finding answers to questions. The children spent 3 hours in the museum and had lots of help from the staff who were all wearing PPE and keeping really good social distancing measures. The kids loved it and had a real chance to explore. Because of the quiz we found out far more than we would otherwise have done and my son concentraited and practiced his writing answering questions. The perfect day out for a rainy day, especially duirng the Coronavirus restrictions. The canteen is not serving meals at the moment but you can get a brew and snacks and there is space to eat your packed lunch. Admission for children is free and adults are only£5 so it is very cheap.

Lots of old buses, little shop and cafe. Very interesting to learn about the history of transport. Bigger than expected. £5 per adult free for kids. My kids loved it

A good selection of Minors on show here, venue is vast and full of old buses in varying condition but most are in good nick. Vintage bus ride around the local roads was an added attraction too! Well worth the trek from Ormskirk!

I have been to quite a few bus museums some free some with paid entry and this one was no better than the free ones. Save your money as at £5 a adult it's not cheap.
