We are also home to the largest collection of battery electric road vehicles, including over 30 electric milk floats and bread vans from operators such as the Co-op, Midland Counties and Birmingham and Handsworth Dairies Additionally, on our event days you can enjoy: Buses running all day for you to ride on Visiting buses Sales stands Ride-on miniature steam railway And on some days a bus service runs from Birmingham City Centre

The museum primarily comprises old buses from across the West Midlands area, and includes many fully preserved examples as well as some undergoing preservation. There is a surprising amount to see, and the main hall is fairly well laid out with room to see all round the exhibits. There are other areas though where vehicles are very tightly packed in.

There are all sorts of other bus-related items, including signs and street furniture, as well as a collection of preserved milk floats (which I think I recall seeing that this was the largest collection of such vehicles anywhere).

I visited on a VERY wet bank holiday, and this was an ideal way to spend a few hours to keep out of the rain, but I'd recommend a visit regardless.

We took our toddler grandson here as he is obsessed with buses at the moment, it was only £4 each entry, very reasonable, there was a huge collection of vintage buses from all over the Midlands, growing up in Staffordshire I recognised a few of the vehicles, there was a small museum and basic cafe which was clean and user friendly, as were the toilets and baby changing facilities. There was a small shop which really catered for the avid bus collector, I feel that they are missing out on the tinies for gifts, as there was really much to buy for them and there were several children there and no doubt would have loved to take a bus home. There was also a narrow gauge railway, which was a delight, it ran around the site, through a little tunnel and my grandson was beside himself, he loved it. Well worth a visit.
