We house a fabulous collection of transport and engineering objects relating to Ipswich and the surrounding area. We're a volunteer run Museum, and trace our roots back to 1965, when Eric Mouser bought an old Dennis Ace bus. That bus spawned a collection of over 100 major exhibits all with local connections in that they were made or used in and around Ipswich.
So, whether you are interested in buses, lorries, bikes, cranes or carriages, social history or just want to know a bit more about the area, you will find our museum a fascinating place.
In addition to the big stuff we've got loads of supporting objects and ephemera to help tell stories and explain why our objects are so important - everyday sights from yesteryear saved for your enjoyment today!
