Trolleybus Museum

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.

The Museum offers a fascinating day out for all the family. It is open on specific open days only between Easter and November (we call these “Trolleydays”) when 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.
