THE Transport Museum in Chapel Lane, Wythall, near M42 junction 3, had a record-breaking season last year and will be pulling out all the stops this coming Easter Bank Holiday weekend.

Malcolm Keeley, collections manager put their success down to offering good value for money.

“You can simply visit the museum but our classic buses offer you a great taste of the past,” he said.

“They’re ready to carry you on Easter Sunday and Monday through beautiful villages like Henley-in-Arden, Earlswood, Alvechurch and Beoley.

“Few of our rides cost more than £2. Better still, you can upgrade your museum entry ticket to include as many bus rides as you like. For instance, upgrading the £4 adult ticket gives you all-day rides too for only £8.”

Volunteers entirely run the museum, restoring and preserving around 100 classic buses, coaches, milk floats and bread vans, including a 1949 Wolverhampton trolleybus – powered by electricity through overhead wires.

The museum opens at 10.30am on Easter Sunday and Monday when miniature steam trains are also ready to carry kids from nought to ninety around the grounds. You can also visit on Good Friday and Saturday from 11am when admission is only £3.
