We stumbled on this Museum completely by chance and we did not regret one moment of our decision to have a look. It is packed with most interesting items relative to transports in its widest significance.More

Loved the broad range of exhibits in excellent condition with plenty of accompanying information. Plenty of nostalgia for older visitors and interesting discoveries for everyone. Various puzzles to keep the kids happy. Nice cafe too. Thoroughly recommended!

A dog friendly museum, one of the few in Scotland. A very friendly and welcoming staff who are knowledgeable. A super way to spend a wet afternoon with some fantastic exhibits. Today there was a special steam attraction with steam tractors and vehicles galore.

No matter how many times I visit this place it never fails to please. Whilst it may be small it makes up for it with the volume of exhibits inside. Well worth the visit and having ample easy access parking makes it that much better.
