Our award-winning, Visit Wales accredited 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's 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. Several examples of famous London Transport-type buses 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 and classic emergency service vehicles.

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.

Visit our operational model railway display and slot car track room, where you can test your skills in trying to beat the track record.

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.

Opening hours: Saturdays 11am - 3pm
A heritage bus ride around the local area departs at 1pm

Group visits welcome outside normal opening hours
by advance request.

Admission: Adults £8, Under 16s £4
