Free Heritage Bus Rides

Our free heritage bus rides on the first Sunday of each month are very popular, and this year we’re running them on the first Saturday of each month as well. Come and enjoy a ride on one of our historic buses and experience a trip back in time. All rides are free, and operate at intervals when the museum is open, according to demand.
