Can I hire a vehicle from the museum?
Unfortunately, as most of the museum’s collection are loaned to us, we are unable to hire out vehicles. For vintage buses, contact the Stagecoach Heritage Fleet: www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/east-scotland/vintage-bus-hire or Henry, the vintage 8-seater bus: www.henrytours.co.uk
Am I allowed to sit in the vehicles?
Whilst most vehicles allow the inside to be viewed, we do not permit sitting in these vehicles due to the age and the fact that many are loaned to the museum from collectors or enthusiasts.
