Rushden Transport Museum

There is more to Rushden Transport Museum than you might think so come along soon and share in the exploration of Rushden’s transport past – for FREE!

Do you want an enlightening introduction to road and rail transport in and around Rushden, Northamptonshire?  Then you must visit the Rushden Transport Museum.

Rushden Transport Museum situated in the rooms of the old Victorian (1893) Rushden Station is a gem in the cultural heritage of East Northamptonshire.  Our collection highlights the growth of Rushden within the development of road and rail transport and its impact on the local population.

Come and ‘meet’ the drayman, the fireman, the petrol pump attendant, poor injured ‘Annie’ and a little boy saying good bye to his Pa.  Imagine working in the Ticket Office (non – running days only) or the parcels office or maybe sitting in the Station Masters chair – when he is not there of course!

A place of quiet reflection and nostalgia for our older visitors as well as an eye opener for younger guests to the differences before technology took over.

So we hope to see you soon; remember admission is free although donations are always welcome and appreciated for the upkeep and development of the museum.
