Sydney Bus Museum (also known as the Sydney Bus and Truck Museum) is a not-for-profit transportation museum and education centre for public benefit located in the suburb of Leichhardt, in Sydney, Australia.

It opened in 1986 in the former Tempe Bus Depot being formally opened in April 1988.[1] Following the State Transit Authority deciding to re-open the depot for its Metrobus operation, the museum was allocated space in a disused part of Leichhardt depot in 2010.[2]

The museum is open to the public on the first and third Sunday of each month.[3]

The museum restores, maintains, displays and operates buses from the 1920s to recent eras.[4] It also provides buses for historical celebrations,[5] and for film and photo shoots.[6]
