When in Europe, art museums tend to take all the glory. The Transport museum was definitely a fascinating (alternative) look back in time. The exhibit was very informative, and I really enjoyed seeing pictures from when horses ruled the roads. I can much more easily imagine the stench, thanks to some delightfully vivid accounts written in the museum. The Tube... More

Very modern facilities with plenty of activities for children to play not just looking at displays like other older museums. Only stay for about an hour or so but if transport is you think you could easily look at the details for a long time. Day ticket cost as the same price as annual pass which you can visit as... More

A fascinating look at all that went into the development of the present day public transportation that keeps London, and the U.K. on the go. The roots of all of it are contained in here, with numerous exhibits and examples of early public transportation right up the modern day systems found all through the U.K.

Visited with my husband to fill in a few hours before catching the train. Yawned a bit when he suggested it. I was very pleasantly surprised! It was a brilliant afternoon of entertainment and am going to take the kids with us next month. No chance of the kids being bored as there is so much for them to do.....interactive... More

Highly recommended! We took both our kids (6months & 3 years) for a day out in London and to the museum. Entry was £15, but for leaving our name and address, our passed were upgraded to annual, so we can return anytime. The museum is very well set out and the fact you can get on and off a lot... More

If you are into transport, this museum is well worth a visit. But be prepared because unlike some museums there is an entrance fee of £15. We went as a family (of adults) and we all enjoyed climbing onto the old London buses, tube trains and trams. Great!! Also quite informative without being overly detailed. There were exhibits and activities... More
