Perfect for a family day out…


There’s lots to do, making the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft a great family day out for all ages!

It’s not just old buses – we have a Toy Museum, a Cycle Shop Museum, a replica pre-fab home, play areas for the youngsters, a Lecture Theatre/Cinema showing videos and our Tea Trolley Cafe. We have a reputation for friendliness and good value – check out the reviews our visitors give us on Google Maps and Trip Advisor.

Founded in 1969 on part of a former wartime RAF station, to house, restore and run trolleybuses when they were fast disappearing from Britain’s streets, the Museum has grown from a handful of vehicles and now has over 50 – the largest collection of preserved trolleybuses in the world. And, having purchased additional land in recent years, we now have ambitious plans to expand our facilities and exhibitions, with work starting in Winter 2022/23 – see our News page.
