BUSES will be taking members of the public on mystery tours, as part of Dewsbury Bus Museum’s open day.

The museum in Foundry Street, Ravensthorpe, will have six of its vintage buses on show, with Arriva providing two more to accommodate passengers.

Museum secretary Tony Salmon said: “A lot of this is to attract bus enthusiasts, but kids find it interesting and we do find a lot of older people enjoy it, because it’s their memories. These are the buses they travelled on when they were young.”

The museum will be open from 11am until 4pm on Sunday March 13, and there will be a free shuttle bus service leaving from stand 19 at Dewsbury bus station.

As well as the mystery tours on buses dating from the 50s, 60s, 80s and 90s, there will be stalls full of transport memorabilia.

Tickets, plus a programme listing the tours, can be bought on the day for £1.50. They can be ordered in advance from www.dewsburybusmuseum.co.uk for £2.50.
