Kids can have a wonderful day out and let their imaginations run wild as they get transported back in time at the historical and interactive London Transport Museum. The museum tells the story of London and its transport system over the past two centuries, showing the connections between the development of modern London, society and transport. The museum also explores the transport developments of the present day and in the future. The collection started as far back as the 1920s when the London General Omnibus Company made a decision to preserve for future generations two Victorian horse buses and an early motorbus. Jam-packed with buses, trams, trains and taxis, visitors can take the wheel, try their hand as a London Tube Conductor or bump around with passengers in the back, as they discover the vehicles of London’s history. There are all sorts of events on offer for families, from the Singing and stories for the under 5s to the school holiday activities. The family playzone All Aboard is a great place for children aged 0Р7 to explore and play on real buses and even drive a Tube train simulator. Schools can also get on board at the museum. From Science to History, Maths to Art & Design, pupils will be inspired by fun and creative activities including interactive workshops and actor-led sessions. All sessions can be applied for a range of learning needs and support delivery of the national curriculum.
