Open 11.00 Last admission 16.00. Please wrap up warm if visiting in winter. We are a small volunteer-run museum, so sorry - we don't have a cafe. We are located approx 400 ft after the totally separate Ingrow Loco Museum. We are close to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.You don't have to be a railway enthusiast to enjoy our museum! Over 60 television programmes and films have featured carriages from our museum. Watch the videos. Listen to the sound presentations as you sit inside the carriages.

Amazing what volunteers can achieve restoring old coaches to pristine standard, great collection of historic artefacts lovingly kept, well worth a diversion to view.

The Vintage Carriages themselves are a good enough reason to visit, but along with the other railway memorabilia on display makes this a great place to visit, and the parking is free!!!

Great collection of coaches and lots of other railwayana, well laid out, accessible and visitor friendly. At the far end of the museum you can see into the carriage repair workshops and see work in progress.
