Back when Birkenhead was a pioneering industrial town it was the first place in Europe to adopt a street tramway. Those trams ceased operating in 1937, but in 1995 they were revived and up until recently you could travel on one of a series of historic vehicles and experience tram travel for yourself.

Trams dating from as early as 1901 operate to make the short journey from Woodside to the Wirral Transport Museum, where you can view the rest of the fleet - tram cars from Birkenhead, Liverpool, Wallasey and a recently restored car from Lisbon, Portugal. The Museum is proud proud winner of the Wirral Unsung Hero of The Year 2012 with their volunteers.

The transport collection was created as a celebration of Birkenhead's place in the history of public transport, and set up in collaboration with the volunteers of the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society, who restore old trams.

In addition to trams, the museum houses a collection of local buses in running order and a group of cars and motorbikes from the Baxter Collection. There is also a model railway layout and World of Motion, a real transport enthusiasts' model shop.

(Trams : 1st tram departs Woodside Ferry 1pm, last tram departs Woodside Ferry to depot 4.30pm. They run every half hour on the hour.)
