The Dewsbury Bus Museum is owned and operated by the West Riding Omnibus Museum Trust and is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. The aim of the Trust is to preserve the transport heritage of the West Riding of Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. Some of our buses and coaches are owned by groups, others by individual members.
We are a Registered Charity, No. 702232, and virtually all of our income is derived from members' subscriptions, the proceeds of events and book sales and rental of space to members to store their own vehicles.
We hold a number events each year, some at the Museum and others in the West Riding area. Full details of all these are on the EVENTS page of this website. Also, we take our buses and coaches to other events and rallies organised by other museums and enthusiast groups.
If you wish to bring a group for a private visit to our museum at other times, please contact us.

Each day, from 1st January 2021 to the end of May, we featured a photograph of each and every Guy Wulfrunian - our "Guy Wulfrunian Of The Day" - in West Riding fleet number order, starting with prototype 863. The non-West Riding ones were featured later and right at the end, a few "specials".
The photographs have been added to our Guy Wulfrunians - ALL OF THEM album on Flickr. You can see them by clicking HERE or by looking in our Flickr album at:

What a great day we had! There were lots of visitors and lots of buses and coaches, over 45 of them, both static exhibits and running in service.The weather helped too. It wasn't a bright sunny day but it wasn't raining either.
Our anti-Covid systems worked well, even if it did slow down the boarding of the buses a bit - we hope that you agree that it was worth the wait.
We would like to thank all the visitors, the visiting vehicle owners, the stallholders and the residents of Heath village for helping make this a day to remember.
A selection of photographs taken on the day are in our Flickr Gallery HERE
