The Transport Museum, Wythall is a transport museum just outside Birmingham, at Chapel Lane, Wythall, Worcestershire, England.[1] The museum is run by the charity The Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Trust (BaMMOT).

The Trust was formed in 1977 and the museum site was acquired in February 1978. The museum has three halls, presenting a significant collection of preserved buses and coaches, including Midland Red and Birmingham City Transport vehicles, a collection of battery electric vehicles such as milk floats, and a Tilling-Stevens petrol-electric bus.

It is also home to the Elmdon Model Engineering Society (EMES) who operate the Wythall Miniature Railway within the grounds of the transport museum, giving rides to public on miniature steam trains.
