Our award-winning museum restores, displays and operates buses that were once a popular sight on roads around Swansea and in regular use by public transport companies which served the population of South and West Wales. It is a go to place for visitors to the Swansea Bay region as well as performing an educational role.

The museum’s impressive collection consists mainly of vehicles that ran under the banner of South Wales Transport and later First Cymru. Two excellent examples of the famous London Transport Routemaster never fail to catch the eye of visitors. The museum is also home to a fascinating selection of British and American cars, vans, Land Rovers, early commercial vehicles together with an iconic fire engine that is a survivor of the battle to contain the flames of Swansea’s horrific Three Night’s Blitz.

Also in the custody of the museum are several vehicles and artefacts on long-term loan from Swansea Museum’s Collections Centre at Landore with which we enjoy a healthy involvement.
From time to time the museum hosts specialist events covering many different forms of vehicles and transport. These are generally advertised in advance and further enhance its educational involvement.

Due to impending repairs to the roof, the museum is presently closed until early 2022.
The re-opening date will be advised in due course.
