If you would like to become involved with the Museum of Transport, you can do this by joining Greater Manchester Transport Society.

Accredited by Arts Council England and owned by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), the Museum is managed by Greater Manchester Transport Society (a Registered Charity).

If you wish to become a volunteer at the Museum and help out during our events, or you could give us an hour of your time, we would be very happy to welcome you. Just send us an email and we will arrange a convenient time with you to meet at the Museum and see how you could be part of our volunteer team.

Full Membership

This category is primarily for people who wish to be involved with the work of the Museum. You don't need to be skilled as we will offer you the chance to learn new skills.


Full members are encouraged to help out when we are open as well as on Wednesday evenings, our dedicated working time when a lot of vehicle maintenance and restoration work is carried out as well as other tasks involved with running the Museum.


The Journal requires regular input, documents and objects have to be catalogued, displays need to be changed, vehicles need to be cared for and  events need to be organised and staffed...

Full Membership (per year): £20

Senior Membership

Senior Membership is the same as Full Membership but is for people born before 1/10/54.

Senior Membership (per year): £17 (£15 for Journal by email)


For those who do not wish to work in the Museum there is the option to be a 'subscriber'.

Subscriber (per year): £17 (£15 for Journal by email)
