Wirral Tramway & Wirral Transport Museum

A vintage green tram attached to the original tramlines outside of the museum.

Overview

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

The Wirral Transport Museum and Heritage Tramway is TEMPORARILY CLOSED until further notice

“ Come and enjoy the sights and sounds of yesteryear at the Wirral Transport Museum, where the volunteers of the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society restore and preserve transport of the past for the delight and benefit of the present and the future.

Take a ride back in time on one of our electric heritage trams and let the memories of a bygone age come flooding back.

As you wander through our fascinating collection of trams, buses, cars, motorcycles and cycles, see the delight on your children's faces as they gaze in wonder on the miniature world of our model railway, while you explore the vast array of transport and other  fascinating memorabilia.

There's so much to see – so much to enjoy and now, thanks to the support of Wirral Borough Council, so much more. For, following the completion of a substantial refurbishment programme in the Spring of 2018, we can now offer our visitors much improved facilities such as a new separate foyer and entrance, a tea room, sales kiosk (formed from two former Victorian Mersey Ferry booths), a suite of toilets, including for those with mobility or other physical issues, a lift to the second level, leading to a new Viewing Gallery and new or improved displays.

There really is something for everyone and we pride ourselves in the warmth of our welcome and  the friendliness of our volunteers.

We were delighted to be awarded the 2018 Wirral Tourism Award for Wirral's “Hidden Gem” and are the proud holders of FOUR consecutive Tripadvisor's Certificates of Excellence.
