There many of old buses, trucks, cars in the museum, even the old tram is over there. Not easy to reach all of them because there is lack of room.

This was my second visit to the museum, it houses a great selection of mass transport vehicles and many are restored to a very high standard. I loved the old trams. Well worth a visit and good for a few hours.

The National Transport Museum is conveniently and pleasantly located near the Howth Castle. It includes a very large collection of beautiful and fascinating vehicles, including a horse-drawn milk cart and an early double-decker bus. The curator was extremely well informed and friendly.

A must see for anyone who likes larger things on wheels, from enormous double deck old Dublin electric tramcars and traditional double deck buses to Fire Engines and Military vehicles - it's all there and some.
