The museum is hugely popular with families and is often very busy. If you’d rather avoid the crowds then try not to visit at weekends or during the school holidays if possible.
If you don’t want to visit the museum itself, it might still be worth a trip to the gift shop to pick up some stunning souvenirs featuring iconic designs from London Transport’s long history.
If you’re a major fan of public transport systems, you’ll probably also enjoy a trip to the London Transport Museum’s depot at Acton which is where many of the older or larger exhibits were moved after the museum galleries were modernized. It’s only open on certain dates or special occasions, so check the site’s website before heading to Acton.
If you want to try something different, then consider booking one of the museum’s Hidden London tours. These exclusive experiences take you to some unique locations related to London’s transport history, including the old headquarters at 55 Broadway, plus deserted London Underground stations such as Aldwych, which has been used as a set for many films since its closing in 1994.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s there to see at the London Transport Museum?

The London Transport Museum conserves the transport heritage of the UK’s capital city, and the first exhibits were collected at the beginning of the 20th century when the London General Omnibus Company decided to preserve old buses being replaced by newer vehicles. The LGOC was taken over by the London Electric Railway in the 1930s and from then on the collection expanded to include railway carriages and engines as well. Today you’ll see buses, trams, trolleybuses, and rail vehicles, with information explaining where and when they were used, and their impact on the daily lives of Londoners. You’ll also learn about what it’s like to work for Transport for London in several of their diverse roles. If you’re lucky to visit on a day when the Acton site of the museum is open you’ll also have a chance to see more early locomotives and an example of the 1938 tube train stock. Many exhibits are interactive, including simulators. Read more.

Is the museum suitable for children?

The museum is extremely suitable for children of all ages! They’ll enjoy being able to sit inside all sorts of buses, trams, and train and rail carriages, some modern and some from the early days of London’s transport system. Small children will enjoy the All Aboard play zone for children aged 0 to 7, which includes a special soft play zone for babies. There’s also a stamper trail, where children can collect stamps on their ticket from all the different zones of the museum, and the Future Engineers interactive gallery. During term time there are weekly storytelling and singing sessions for smaller children, and there’s a range of special events during the school holidays. For details of family-friendly events, check the museum’s website before visiting. The museum is accessible with a buggy, or there’s a buggy park if you’d prefer not to take it around with you.
