Heaton Park Tram Museum review Rate it

Run by volunteers, this small but lovely museum is housed in an old tram shelter, from which restored vehicles run all year. The original system fell into disuse in the 1930s, and the park's tramlines were released from beneath a layer of tarmac only in the late '70s. The building includes transport memorabilia, demonstration models, a shop and a maintenance pit where you can see the trams undergoing restoration.
