A brief history of the collection can be found on this website. The collections also include the Ipswich Engineering Collection; displays and objects celebrating the rich engineering history of Ipswich. The museum has around 100 major exhibits and many small items connected with transport in Ipswich.

The museum is disabled friendly being on one level only.
