Not a bit museum, but it's packed with all sorts of transport memorabilia. The highlight is probably the Peel P60 car, but the range of railway piece is amazing, as are the collection of motorbike fairing and publicity. Kids might get a bit bored, but...More

This place is tiny. It is free but survives on donations. Interesting for 10 - 15 minutes. You get to see a copy of the Shuttleworth Special and an original P50. Some train stuff as well. Friendly people.

Micro museum run by enthusiastic volunteers. OK if passing but don't make a special trip, and it's closed most of the time anyway. They try hard with limited resources.
