Become a Member


If you would like to become involved with the Museum of Transport, you can do this by joining the Greater Manchester Transport Society.


If you wish to become a volunteer at the Museum and help out during our large events, or could give us an hour of your time, we would be very happy to welcome you.


Just send us an email and we will arrange a convenient time with you to meet at the Museum and see how you can be a part of our volunteers team as a Full Member or Senior Member.


We look forward to hearing from you!



Full Membership


This category is primarily for people who wish to be involved with the work of the Museum. You do not need to be a skilled craftsman as the Society offers you the chance to learn e.g. vehicle or building maintenance, painting or running the shop.


Full members are encouraged on Wednesdays - there are opportunities to help with the running of the Museum during the day and into the evening.


The Society magazine requires regular input of fleet news and articles, small exhibits and archives have to be catalogued and displayed, etc. The Society organises regular open days, Festivals and the Rally all of which take considerable organisation and manpower.


Please see 'Senior Membership' if you were born before 1/10/54.
