The staff superb and very attentive. But quite disappointing as on a very small scale. Nothing like what I have seen on the TV.

Brilliant experience
Oct 2021
We went inside this centre as part of our day out at Brooklands. Such an interesting place to visit, also if you can booking a ticket for a ride on the double decker is also well worth it. Only £2 a ticker but money well spent!

Lots of busses to look at.

entry was free as part of the Brooklands entry fee. I'd recommend the whole lot, as it was all very interesting.

Wonderfull addition to the Brooklands Museum
Jul 2021
Visited on Wednesday 21st July 2021 as part of a day out to Brooklands Transport Museum & Mercedes World with friends. Located inside the Brooklands Museum entry to Brooklands gets you entry to this additional but separate Museum. Located inside a big canvas structure there are many many buses of various types/ages arranged in a creative fashion enabling viewing access to all, as well as the history of the buses in general. Some buses you can access, but due to COVID, the access was limited on our visit. There is an excellent gift shop and for £3 pp an old Routemaster was giving 30 min bus rides around Weybridge. This bus ride is just that. It is not a tour or has any guide, so if you have the time just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Spent the afternoon at the museum, could have spent a couple of days. Fascinating. Volunteers were really well informed and very enthusiastic and helpful.

Interesting bus museum
Aug 2021
Museum free to enter within Brooklands museum. Contains a variety of London buses through the ages. Some can be boarded. Also a gift shop where tickets can be purchased for £2 for a 30 min bus ride on a heritage bus round the local area. Last tour was at 3pm on day we visited. Worth doing bus ride as well as seeing exhibits in museum. Perhaps degree of interest in this museum is proportional to your interest in busses, especially London busses? Unless I missed it, there were no trolley busses only motor ones.

Disappointing
Jul 2021
We visited as part of our weekend stay at Brooklands Hotel.

Admission to the museum was 'free' through purchasing a ticket to Brooklands museum. We were not impressed with being unable to go onto many buses, as you couldn't compare the interior of them all. Looking at the outsides of the buses was good, but a bus is a bus. The museum itself is relatively small with lots of buses close together. The best part of the museum, in my opinion, was the gift shop! Perhaps good for a bus enthusiast, but unfortunately, not for me. I think children would get bored very quickly.

Good presentation and loads to see
Jul 2021
This museum is part of the much larger Brooklands Museum. It has recently had a major refurbishment and was completely different to my first visit, and mush improved. As part of our visit we took advantage of one of their off-site bus rides on a former London Transport 'RT' bus, which was most enjoyable. These attract an extra charge, but it is modest and well worth the price paid.
