Overview

Located between Doncaster and Scunthorpe, The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft houses the world's largest collection of historic trolleybuses, together with a number of other vehicles including period motor buses. The Museum offers a fascinating day out for all the family. We are open to the public on specific event days when visitors can ride on a selection of our trolleybuses under the specially-erected overhead. We also operate a free conducted tour in one of a number of our vintage motor buses. Other attractions include our 5-star rated cafe, children's play area, 1950s/60s shop displays, presentations in our cinema, a 1950s Prefab home and a cycle and lawnmower shop display. The theme of our special exhibition in the Pelham Building is "Trolleybuses during the First World War." Many event days also feature themes and additional visiting attractions. There is level access to most features on our site. If you need assistance our volunteers are always happy to help. We now have a height-adjustable changing bench in our disabled toilet.
