Scottish Vintage Bus Museum – Bus Running Day 19th May
The Scottish Vintage Bus Museum is at the forefront of historic bus restoration and operation in Scotland and houses, on a 49-acre site, about 190 vehicles. Around 160 are buses, most of Scottish origin, in varying levels of condition, from fully restored to dilapidated.
The museum is open every Sunday from Easter until the end of September. The entrance charge includes a guided tour of the site and the storage sheds in a vintage bus, starting and ending at the Exhibition Hall – where visitors can spend as much time as they wish. The Exhibition Hall houses several vehicles and artifacts, and also the museum cafe and shop. A new roof was fitted recently, that improved the natural light immensely.
The main event each year is the Open Weekend, which for 2013 is on August 17th and 18th. There is also a Bus Running Day on May 19th when, in addition to the free Dunfermline service, there are free services running from the museum to several destinations, giving round trips of between 30 and 45 minutes.
We host the annual ‘Festival of Historic Transport’, organised by the Fife Historic Vehicle Club and this year, an additional event is ‘Truckmania’, organised by the Scottish Trucker Club.
A free half-hourly bus service runs from Dunfermline on most Open days.
