Jurby Transport Museum

OK. We're biased. This is one of our favourite little museums on the Island - although, in all honesty, it's not that little.

Never quite the same twice, the Jurby Transport museum provides an engaging and nostalgic look back to times that seemed a bit simpler. Focusing largely on public transport vehicles, many of which are accessible to visitors, the museum can whip you right back to childhood with nothing more than a vinyl seat at the back of the top deck. It's amazing, and more than a bit surprising, how evocative this is. You'll be surprised what the smell of a bus can do to bring back memories!

Many of the vehicles in the museum's collection are undergoing repair and refurbishment by a team of dedicated volunteers, so you'll find the place to be something of a hive of understated activity - there's always something going on. The volunteer staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the tea and coffee are good and cheap.

The Transport museum also works nicely as a gentle counterpart for winding-down after the almost overwhelming amount of exhibits in the Isle of Man Motor Museum (also an essential visit!), just across the road.
