Jurby Transport Museum is operated by Manx Transport Trust Ltd, a registered charity, based in unit 230, a World War II hangar built in 1940, on the former Jurby airfield.

The museum displays examples of public and commercial road transport using a combination of vehicles on loan from the Department of Community, Culture & Leisure and Douglas Corporation Transport, together with privately owned vehicles, and vehicles owned by the Trust.

In addition to restoration and display, the museum seeks to inform visitors of the Island’s transport history and to promote the necessary interest and skills to enable the maintenance and expansion of the facility for the future.
