Manx Transport Heritage Museum

An Aladdin’s cave of historic transport memorabilia from around the Isle of Man, including the world’s smallest road legal car!

Overview

This small but perfectly formed museum – which is only 60 square metres in size – has a wealth of exhibits to discover.

You’ll find models, exhibits, photographs and unique artefacts which catalogue the varying, and sometimes obscure, modes of transport adopted on the Island over the decades.

There’s a model train and railway, memorabilia from the ferries, buses and motoring world and an electric TTXGP motorbike which finished third in the 2010 event.

The Manx Transport Heritage Museum is also home to the P50 – the smallest, road legal car in the world - which was manufactured in Peel in 1964, just 300 yards away from the museum.

You’ll also uncover details of the original prototypes for the innovative flywheels and cylinder head for BCM rally cars and racing cars produced by Manx Racing Dev and original framed posters of Manx car rallies and Isle of Man Railways notices.
