Based in Keighley and a short walk from Keighley railway station, Keighley Bus Museum is housed in the former ex-foundry building off Dalton Lane at Riverside estate.
It houses a superb collection of buses of all ages from 1924 to 2000, many from local bus companies in West Yorkshire and some from further away. Also there are emergency vehicles from the Police and Fire service on view, together with other transport related vehicles many of which are on the button ready to go. There is also a variety of trolleybuses, including WT 7101 the 1924 Keighley Corporation Straker Clough trolleybus which is currently undergoing restoration.
Don’t hesitate to contact us by letter, phone use the contact information below, or send a message using the form. We may also provide accommodation for your treasured vehicle, please get in touch for details/inquiries.
Can we remind members/friends and any enquiries from the public that we are an unpaid Charitable organisation, and therefore not always able to reply to telephone calls as many of the Board members are otherwise employed. If you have not received a reply please try to communicate via text or email.
The Museum will be closed to the public from November (after “Twilight” event) until March 2022. Any viewings at these times will be appointment only please.

It was nice to see The Wharfedale Triumph TR Group who dropped in today for a look round today, (21st November). Thank you for your interest, donation and a chance to see some of your own vehicles. The usual thanks from the Museum go to to Simon and Marlene Waye, (who provided hot beverages on a freezing day) John Hewitt and Macaulay Kirby who once again made sure everything went well.
