    Magnificent museum jam-packed with all things transport in London. You could easily spend several hours here just looking at and interacting with all the exhibits - you can even drive the tube yourself. The gift shop is a design and transport anorak's dream.

    Kids love this place. It's right in the heart of Covent Garden so it's a good compromise - kids go to the museum, and then you get to do a bit of shopping. Loads of old buses on which kids can run around. Get a tour of the history of transport in London which is really fascinating. If you are into design there are often exhibitions of transport maps, posters, etc. It's open late on Fridays until 10pm. Best of all kids under 16 get in for FREE!

    The London Transport Museum has examples of buses and trains from the past. It's a great museum for that particular sort of history buff and a curiosity for the rest of us.

    I'm a bit of a map geek and the London Transport Museum often has decent exhibitions on, featuring maps.

    Other than regular exhibitions there's also the constant collections with old, old buses, Victorian era train carriages, and the ubiquitous London routemaster.

    that's an interesting spot for expeditions. You may get to know a variety of vehicles used for public transport in a fast growing place. You may as well try to discover ways to extend the tube net virtually and find yourself puzzling of how to do it in a economical way. You see a big map of the growing transport net and have a chance to enter tradional transport

    Located in Covent Garden, Transport of London's museum is an experience not to be missed by kids and adults who are still kids at heart. Anyone who has ever been awed with how London's Underground was built and enjoys large scale engineering works will love this unique museum.

    If you are in to transport and public transport this will fit your needs nicely. It's not a bad little museum. Although a route master double decker bus is the best - and rare to find these days, so you may have to check it out at the museum. Closest tube station is Covent Garden

    If you have young children, then this is a great place to go for a rainy day! It is filled with cars, buses, trains, taxi cabs and many hands on experiences for young children.

Description:

Explore the history of London and its transport since 1800 with the history and origins of buses, trams, trains, taxis, river boats, cycles and walking. Also in the museum are films, posters and working models of modern and older transportation modes. Displays and shows include the role and varied experiences of women working for London Transport and the history of London Transport during World War II. Utilizing actors, interactive displays and even bus simulators, this really is a journey you won't want to miss. Other highlights include Harry Beck's original 1930s artwork for the famous Underground map and interactive "Futures" and "Coming Soon Galleries," which showcase our impact on the environment of future London. If you thought you had seen it all, think again.
