The Ipswich Transport Museum has the largest collection of transport items
in Britain devoted to just one town. Everything was either made or used in
and around Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk.
A brief history of the collection can be found
on this website.
The collections also include the Ipswich Engineering Collection;
displays and objects celebrating the rich engineering history of Ipswich.
The museum has around 100 major exhibits and many small items connected with transport in Ipswich.
The museum is disabled friendly being on one level only.
|Why not visit the Sunbeam Tearoom during your visit and have a delicious cup of tea, coffee or soft drink and a bite to eat?
The operations of the Museum are supported by the
Friends of the Ipswich Transport Museum.
The Museum also organises the annual Ipswich to Felixstowe Historic
Vehicle Road Run in May each year and a number of special events throughout the year.
|The Annual Ipswich to Felixstowe Historic Vehicle Run 2016.
Once again we are holding the Ipswich to Felixstowe Historic Vehicle Road Run to raise funds for the Ipswich Transport Museum, so we are inviting entries for the 46th event on Sunday 1st May 2016. For the past few years this event has cost in excess of £4000 to put on but despite rising costs we have decided that we should keep the entry fee at £14 per vehicle (see Museum Events Page).
