We decided to take a look around the London Transport Museum one Sunday whilst waiting for another booking, and what an unexpected delight. The museum was so interesting, definitely not just for kids. A tip for Londoners, buy the yearly ticket, it costs the same, you just need to tell the people when you buy it that you want it... More

The venue has first rate facilities and the staff are extremely friendly. I found the shop had a wide range of products and was good value too. I recommend this place for couples... More

A very interesting couple of hours - lots of history as to why London's transport infrastructure is laid out as it is. Train and tube carriages and buses to climb aboard. Plenty for both adults and kids. The £15 entry allows you to come back for free for the next 12 months. Good cafeteria too. The signage could have been... More

A very good history of transport in London from the early days right up to the present. Tube, buses and taxis all catered for

In short, the Transport Museum is one of the most wonderful museums I’ve visited in London. I’ve been to London 5 times so far, will return next month and am already planning another trip in 2015. My very first impression was that it was happily colourful and larger than I thought. Me and my travel partner spent about two hours... More

Ideal for families, we've been here so often I've lost count, but our daughter still finds something of interest to see or play with. Nicely laid out and takes you on a chronological journey through public transport in the capital since horse drawn carriages to the present. Many of the exhibits invite interaction and kids will love it. There is... More

We made a planned visit to the Transport Museum in May 2014 as a family with a train-mad four year old boy and a one year old girl. It is an enjoyable experience with plenty to captivate young children and adults with a passing interest in London Transport vehicles, designs, history, etc. My boy and I spent probably too long...

This is a fantastic museum that isn't just about displays of restored buses and trains but sets transport into its social and economic context.
