The Jurby Transport Museum is operated by the Manx Transport Trust Ltd which is a registered charity run by volunteers. The museum is based in Hangar 230 which is on the Jurby Industrial Estate on the Isle of Man. It is a former RAF Bellman aircraft hangar.
The museum has a wide range of exhibits including buses, trams, lorries, steam cars and a traction engine. There is also a replica Spitfire, an airbourne lifeboat and parts of an Airship (G-MAAC) along with many smaller exhibits. A number of the exhibits are on loan from the Isle of Man Government Department of Community, Culture and Leisure, the remainder are owned either by private individuals or Manx Transport Trust.
The museum aims to inform visitors about the rich transport history of the Isle of Man and promote the interest and skills necessary to enable the maintenance and expansion of the Museum for the future.
