The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft
Home to the World's Largest Collection of Preserved Trolleybuses
Welcome to the Trolleybus Museum's new web site! We hope you will enjoy our new, more informative site.
Located between Doncaster and Scunthorpe, The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft houses the world's largest collection of historic trolleybuses, together with a number of other vehicles including period motor buses.
The Museum offers a fascinating day out for all the family. We are open to the public on specific event days, generally between Easter and November, when visitors can ride on a selection of our trolleybus under the specially-erected overhead. We also operate a free conducted tour in one of a number of our vintage motor buses. Many of our trolleybuses and buses are on display and a conducted tour of these is normally available.
There are a number of other attractions including our 5-rated cafe, children's play area, 1950s / 1960s shop displays, presentations in our cinema, a 1950s Prefab home and a cycle and lawnmower shop display. The theme of our special exhibition in the Pelham Building is "Trolleybuses during the First World War." Many event days also feature themes and additional visiting attractions.
Ample free parking for visitors' cars and coaches is available.
Disabled parking spaces are provided and much of the Museum (including toilet facilities) is accessible to people with disabilities, but there may be wheelchair access problems in certain areas. People with mobility problems may have difficulty boarding our historic vehicles but we will assist wherever possible.
