About the Museum
The Ipswich Transport Museum has the largest collection of transport items in Britain devoted to just one town. Everything was either made or used in and around Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk. The Museum houses about 90 vehicles, which are divided into various different types of collection. There is also a large amount of material associated with local engineering companies, and transport related memoribelia. The Museum contains a large exhibition hall, which houses various transport and engineering displays. The Hall is not subject to environmental controls but the external insulated cladding shell prevents sudden changes of temperature and of relative humidity. The collections contain a diverse range of materials, including wooden and metal construction, allied to animal products such as leather. As a consequence it is difficult to establish an optimum environment for all exhibits within this hall. Specialist collections are housed in separate rooms which do have some measure of control. Virtually all of the transport related objects belonging to Ipswich Borough Museums are displayed within our Museum. This reflects the good spirit of cooperation which exists between the two Ipswich museums.
