Transport Museum Wythall

Chapel Lane
West Midlands
B47 6JX

The Transport Museum, Wythall was founded in 1977 and its three large halls house a broad collection of around 100 buses, coaches, fire engines and battery-electric vehicles from all parts of the Midlands and beyond. Birmingham and the Black Country especially are featured, and the museum has a unique collection of buses and coaches designed, built and operated by "Midland Red", a company which pioneered many technical innovations over a 50 year manufacturing period.

Of particular appeal to families is the miniature steam railway, constructed and operated by the Elmdon Model Engineering Society to demonstrate the finest examples of model engineering on three gauges. On our special event days you will be able to travel on our preserved buses - then the exhibits come alive as you enjoy the sounds and atmosphere of public transport from years gone by. The Museum depends entirely on volunteers who give up their spare time and holidays to maintain and run all facets of the museum.

Group Visits The Museum is especially pleased to receive groups; refreshments and an expert to escort you around can be provided if required. Groups are also welcome outside normal opening times, by prior arrangements. Please note that groups of children must be accompanied by adults in the ratio of not more than 10 children to each adult.
