Museum of Transport,
The Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester tells the story of, and promotes, public road transport in Greater Manchester from its very beginnings in 1824 to the present day. The collection spans over 100 years, from an 1890s horse bus to a full-size prototype Metrolink tram. Opened in 1979, the Museum is a partnership between Transport for Greater Manchester and Greater Manchester Transport Society and is an early example of a successful partnership working between a local authority and a voluntary body. There are over seventy buses and other vehicles on display. It is a ‘working’ museum, with as many vehicles as possible maintained in full working order.
