The Transport gallery displays most forms of land transport with a particular Bristol twist almost all were built here, in a city fascinated by anything that moves. Favourites include the world's first holiday caravan and a 1950s equivalent, the Grenville steam carriage and a working Gauge 1 model railway.

There are also bicycles, motorcycles, cars, carriages and a Lodekka bus which is still used to this day to carry visitors from the City Museum to the Industrial Museum for Sunday Fundays.

The Museum's biggest exhibits are outside and are brought to life on summer weekends. The Fairbairn steam crane, a steam railway operated by two steam locomotives, Portbury and Henbury, and the Museum's two tugs and a fire-boat, all Bristol-built and in working order, are great favourites.

Now open from Saturday - Wednesday, 10am to 5pm, all year round. .
