Home to the World’s Largest Collection of Preserved Trolleybuses

Located between Doncaster and Scunthorpe, the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft has over 60 historic trolleybuses in its collection. Many are in working order and on open days visitors can ride on them. Most of our trolleybuses come from towns and cities around Britain, but there are also a few important examples from around Europe and from Canada and New Zealand. To complement the trolleybuses, the Museum has a number of other historic vehicles, many of them diesel buses.

How about visiting the Trolleybus Museum?

The Museum offers a fascinating day out for all the family. Visitors can ride on some of our trolleybuses – electrically-operated rubber-tyred buses that draw 550 volt DC mains electricity from specially constructed overhead wiring. As well as riding on the trolleybuses, there are many other things to see and do, designed to interest you whether or not you like trolleybuses and transport. There is also the 5-rated café which is a must to visit, with made-to-order meals, delicious home-made cakes and hot and cold drinks normally on offer.

Disabled parking spaces are provided and much of the Museum (including toilet facilities) is accessible to people with disabilities, although there may be wheelchair access problems in certain areas. People with mobility problems may have difficulty boarding historic trolleybuses and heritage diesel buses as, regrettably, these vehicles were not designed to be disability accessible: wherever possible, Museum staff will provide assistance.
