About Museum of Transport Greater Manchester

All aboard for a ride through the ages from horse-drawn omnibuses to modern trams. Manchester was birthplace of the industrial revolution – including the first purpose-built canal and the UK’s first public bus service. The museum tells the story of, and promotes, public road transport in Greater Manchester from 1824 to the present day. The collection spans over 100 years, from an 1890s horse bus to a full size prototype Metrolink Tram.
