Transperience was a short-lived museum of passenger transport located at Low Moor, in the south of Bradford in West Yorkshire, Northern England. It opened in July 1995, but closed only 2 years later in October 1997, with debts of over £1 million.[1]

Museum

The museum was built on the site of Low Moor railway station, (which had closed in 1965), at a cost of £11.5 million.[1] It included a 1,100-yard (1 km) tram line which made use of the trackbed of the Spen Valley Line towards Cleckheaton, and visitors could ride on a Hungarian tram or a trolleybus. There was also a series of vehicle simulators and an auditorium.

The museum failed to attract the numbers of visitors hoped[1] and was closed in 1997.

The site today

The museum site was sold to a property developer in 1998[2] and is now an industrial estate. Some parts of the museum, such as the auditorium, still stand.[3] A number of the vehicles in its collection have been sold to other collections, such as the Keighley Bus Museum.[4]

Reopened station

The land formerly occupied by the museum is the site of the new Low Moor railway station.
