The Ipswich Transport Museum collection started over 40 years ago with just one bus. Now it houses more than 100 vehicles and large engineering items designed, built or used in the local area.
You can see buses and bicycles, prams and a police car, lawnmowers and lorries, fire engines, funeral hearses and fork lift trucks. There is access inside certain vehicles so you can compare them to modern ones.
Exhibition rooms feature themed displays on air, rail and waterborne transport.
Ipswich Trolleybus 2 –the oldest on display in the world and tram 33 built in 1904 and beautifully restored by our volunteers after being used as a shed for many years.
Young children can “drive” Dennis the (play) bus.
