behind the scenes: transport store tour

See inside NI's Transport and Industry store and wander around this special private collection.

TIMS Store
18th July, 21st August & 30 October

Want to get behind the scenes of NI's Transport and Industry Store? See inside this treasure trove of thousands of automotive, aeronautic and industrial collections that highlight our history of invention in this part of the world.

Take a self-guided wander around these special collections, including Rex McCandless' innovations, historic bicycles, motorbikes, planes, and boats like the rare Shorts Sealand. This is a unique opportunity to see a working space - unlike our museum! 

When is it? 

Please note, our Transport Store Tours are fully booked.

  • All children must be accompanied by an adult. 
  • No food and drink allowed due to the nature of the space.
