Ipswich Transport Museum

Ipswich Transport Museum is a collection of over 100 major transport and engineering objects which were made or used in the Ipswich area. They show how people used to go about their daily lives, and remind us of the many things that were actually designed and built on our doorstep.

Our Transport Collections are lovingly cared for by dedicated volunteers. The collection started 50 years ago with just one bus, and has grown into one of the most comprehensive collections of its kind. You can see buses and bicycles, prams and a police car, lawnmowers and lorries, fire engines and a funeral hearse. The amazing selection of local vehicles is supported by a variety of small exhibits, display material and ephemera.

The museum also houses the Ipswich Engineering Collection, which includes many items from well known companies including Ransomes Sims and Jeffries, Ransomes and Rapier, Cranes, Reavell and Cocksedge. The display includes cranes, fork lift trucks, lawnmowers and intricate models.
