Aston Transport Museum
Set up in 1978 the Aston Manor Transport Museum can be found on Witton Lane just down from the Aston Villa Football Ground. It's only open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 11am - 5pm but if you are interested in transport, particularly buses, then this is the place to come. A wide range of commercial vehicles are on show and clicking on our photographs section will show you more of what is on offer.
Entrance costs are very reasonable and although the museum is housed in one big shed there is still plenty to see and you should allow a good hour to look around.
Update: Due to the lack of council funding this museum has struggled and was forced to close its doors. However, it is trying to set up again in Aldridge. You can follow its progress at: http://www.amrtm.org/
