Lots and lots of vehicles to see, many historical vehicles. Take your time to stroll around the huge shed. There is also a train museum on the same sight. Plenty of parking. There is also a little cafe.

The Transport Museum is huge. The truck section is amazing, all the semitrailer trucks are pristine. Old vehicles everywhere. Plus a large hall of fame section of truckies. Also a few vintage cars. So interesting.

I looked them up and l think they open every day except like xmas day etc. Open from 9am till 5pm. Might be best to ring them on 08 89527161 or look up their site and email them before you plan to go. Hope this helps you.
