This is part of the Brooklands museum but is run as a separate attraction. It doesn't cost anything to enter but they do ask for donations which we happily put into the box as we left. A real look into the buses from the past and great information given by the volunteers. Thoroughly enjoyed it

This was interesting. We also went on a bus ride in a double decker bus but think this could have been a little bit longer

This used to be in cobham. It is a good place to take children along with the Brooklands museum which is on the same site. Even found a bus that used to serve my home town great place.

This place is extremely interesting as it is not just about bus but the history of travel. We weren't going to bother but we were pleased that we did. Don't miss this out.

Visited for Transportfest with my wife and kids, we had a fantastic time seeing all the old buses, seeing all the excellent displays, but the real highlight was riding on the horse drawn buses and really seeing history being brought to life. So pleased to see the new museum and was so impressed we signed up for annual passes, so... More

We had a walk around as the bus Museum is next to the Brooklands aircraft park and my daughter loved it as she has only ever experienced modern buses. I recounted stories to her of my experiences jumping on and off the old Routemaster's as they drove around the centre of London. It was lovely to be able to go... More

You get a real sense of the history of London Transport in this museum from earliest beginnings to more modern forms of transport

Visited this towards the end of a trip to the Brooklands Museum as it was included in the entrance price. It was therefore only a flying visit but would have liked more time to explore properly. Interesting range of buses and coaches from the horse drawn to modern day. Several are also open to explore/reminisce (if your old enough). If... More

Absolutely loved this. Buses are beautifully restored and maintained and the Museum is well laid out. There is information readily available and if you can't find the answer to a question there are knowledgable, friendly staff on-hand to help. A couple of buses you are able to hop on which our son thoroughly enjoyed. A super visit and would highly... More

Loved the display of buses at Brooklands museum. Nice that you can go on some of the buses rather than just look. Nice and bright inside. We enjoyed it very much. Staff on hand to answer any questions but are not intrusive xx
