The industrial heritage of the North West is brought to life before your very eyes at Bury Transport Museum.
One of the star attractions on the ELR, don’t miss the amazing Bury Transport Museum, packed with historic vehicles of every shape and size.
Hop off the train at our Bury Station, and just across the road – in the restored Castlecroft Goods Warehouse from 1848 – you’ll find the Bury Transport Museum. It’s a must-see stop for all visitors to the East Lancashire Railway, old and young.
Inside, we’ll take you back through the 20th Century, recreating what life was like with loads of hands-on exhibits and full-size vehicles. The whole family will be amazed at the stories we share and the cars, trucks, buses and trains we have on display. You’ll find a treasure trove of vintage vehicles to discover and period costumes to try on, alongside loads of hands-on activities to get stuck into.
We’ve got dozens of original artifacts from the turn of the 20th century and beyond, each telling its own unique tale about the people living and working in the industrial North West – and how they travelled about.
Discover the horse drawn tram that was once a chip shop, learn how “Hilda” the steam roller almost met her end and more.
