We enjoyed the visit and the history of London Transport was amazing. The kids enjoyed sitting on all the old buses and tube trains and I loved the simulators. I was a bit disappointed at the amount of vehicles on display as the photos I looked at, showed more. I have now realised that they also have a museum depot,... More

This museum was on my must see list on visiting London, but to be honest I was a little disappointed; not with the superb exhibits and information boards etc. but with the high entrance charge and the prices of items in the shop. Souvenir pieces such as note pads, pencils etc. were crazy prices, so I kept my money in... More

I brought my children to the London transport museum, as I came here when I was a child and remember what great fun it was. My children had great fun and there was so much to see and do with great interactive activities. The only let down is I feel the gift shop is far too expensive.

We have visited a number of museums all over England and without a doubt this is the most child friendly interactive museum we have visited. The ground floor has loads of interactive displays and the children are able to climb on many of the vehicles. There were also lots of displays to engage and inform the adults as well. Although...

My teenage son and I visited with a friend and her son. The museum is attractively set up, easy to get around and very informative, with lots of interactive activities for both young and old and plenty of exhibits that can be touched or climbed into. A great place for anyone interested in transport or in London's history and development.... More

Probably one of London's better museums, London's Transport Museum reserves surprises for for both younger and older generations of curious tourists. Ever wonder how the first subway was invented? This museum has got the answer. Chock full of insights for adults as well as first hand experience inside the vehicles for the kids, the museum never feels crowded because it... More

Great museum, with lots of interactive displays for children. My daughter who is 4 loved driving a London bus and underground train. Would recommend looking out for money saving vouchers. We got in 2 for 1 by using train ticket voucher. Lots of information to read, transport look at and get into and a childrens activity trail to complete. Took... More

Planned to visit this in the week and was pleasantly surprised at variety of exhibits on display. I only planned to be there for a couple of hours, but I will have to go back to see everything in more detail. Fortunately the entry tickets are valid for 12 months so a return visit (or two) will be grest value.

Visited the Museum as part of a whirlwind tour of London as a family group of 3 . This is a most attractive Museum with a lot of interactivity for little children. My 4 year grandson loved racing around from one exhibit to another. The Museum is well structured telling the story of London Transport through the ages. His favourite... More
