Description

The Isle of Wight Bus and Coach museum is located in Ryde in one of only two former bus garages now surviving on the Island.  Built in 1937, it is home to over 20 historic vehicles, transport artefacts, displays, photographs, a café and a shop.  

This is a great place to go with kids as some of the buses are open to go inside and explore.  Highlights for us were sitting in the driver's seat and and pretending to drive and having a drink in the bus café.  

Free parking is available outside the museum and inside is fully accessible for buggies. 

Entry is free to the museum but donations are welcome.  The museum is funded by donations and run completely by volunteers.
