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 into 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 get behind the wheel of their very own red London bus, build a tunnel ring from building blocks outside the Digging Deeper gallery, or discover fun facts about London’s history with the museum’s interactive stamper trail.
There are all sorts of events on offer for families, including Singing and Stories sessions for the under 5s during term time. The family playzone, All Aboard, is a great place for children aged 0 to 7 years to explore and play on real buses, and in the Future Engineers gallery have a go at driving an Elizabeth Line train!
Schools can also get on board at the museum. From Science to History, Maths to Art and 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.
Adult tickets last a whole year so you can enjoy unlimited daytime entry. Plus kids go free!
