London Transport Museum|
39 Wellington Street, WC2
Nearest Tube: Covent Garden
This museum started life as a collection of old London omnibuses set up by the London Omnibus Company in the 1920s. After the nationalisation of London Transport in the 1940s it was decided that the collection should be preserved and put on public display.
Since then the collection has grown extensively and includes paintings, videos and working models as well as old machines. It covers transport systems in the capital from horse drawn vehicles, to electric trams and the development of the modern day tube system.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved yourself - so if you ever wanted to be a bus or train driver as a child then this is the museum for you! The whole museum is also very child-friendly, and the excellent KidZone that opened in 1997 has ensured that this is a favourite museum for families.
The museum is open 10am-6pm Saturdays-Thursdays and 11am-6pm Fridays. Admission costs around £5 for adults. There is a cafeteria available for refreshments.
