History

The museum was established in 1986 in Whitburn, West Lothian,[3] before moving to its current location at Lathalmond, formerly part of the Royal Navy Stores Depot, in 1995.[1] The museum owns half of the site at Lathalmond which is around 45 acres.[4]

Collection

There are around 160 buses, the majority of which date from the 1920s and 1930s. The collection also includes around another 30 other vehicles.[2] These vehicles include a small railway collection which is on loan to the museum from the Scottish Railway Preservation Society,[1] a collection of classic cars and lorries, a restored steam roller and a restored horse tram.[5]

The museum is a registered charity and the collection is managed by a board made up of mainly trustees.[4]
