How to Find Us

 

Greater Manchester has an excellent public transport system that'll take you where you want to go quickly and easily. It's a fun way to get out and about, no-one has to drive so you can all enjoy the journey - and you don't have to worry about traffic jams, getting directions or parking problems.

 

The Museum of Transport is located approximately one mile north of Manchester City Centre, at the junction of the A665 (Cheetham Hill Road) and the A6010 (Queens Road), close to Manchester Fort Shopping Park. It is at the north end of Boyle Street, adjoining First Manchester's bus garage. There are brown tourist direction signs for the Museum nearby.
