“Missed opportunity”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The biggest transport feature on the Wirral is the M53 - dividing the penisula like a sword through butter. The transport museum does not pay any attention to this modern colosus of engineering. It is ignored, shunned, put to one side - when will they tell the true story of this mighty erection?

“A hidden gem to be proud of”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We found this free museum completely by chance. We've taken a few people now and they are amazed it's there.

A great couple of hours and worth visiting. Come rain or shine.

“Superb authentic collection and free too!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stepped off the Mersey ferry at Woodside and took a short run on the tram up to the Wirral Transport museum. Entry was free and the exhibits and wonderfully displayed. There are trams, buses, vintage cars and a fantastic model railway. A bygone era has been wonderfully re-created with shop fronts and garage scene vignettes. On the day we visited some of the collection was out at a transport fair at Birkenhead park but there was still plenty to see. The volunteers were friendly and knowledgable and you really get a sense of the enthusiasm and commitment from observing the restoration work that is underway to preserve a couple of rescued trams. It may be small but there are nuggets everywhere you look. A real gem with a great atmosphere.

“Love the Tram Museum”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Love this place.. Kids want to come back and if i won the lottery, would give a donation.. The old buses took our imagination and the tram ride was in the true vintage spirit of times gone by.. The old cars, the model railway and nostalgia nostalgia..
