The museum is free for children under a certain age and £15 for an adult which is expensive but once you have paid the £15 you can visit as many times as you like in a year for free. The museum is quite small but there is lots to see and do and is very interactive. It can get very... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to visiting this museum and of all the museums we visited during our week in London, by far this was the most disappointing value. The exhibits were very good however; we just expected more for the entrance fee. It is a small museum. The cafe was disappointing too - not much in... More

We had three days in London, and this museum was a priority visit on my list. I love transport museums and find anything related to transport, and public transport particularly, is of interest to me. I was disappointed at how small the museum is, and just few exhibits there are. The city of London has a long history as one... More

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

I went here for a works do and was delighted with what I found. The location at Covent garden is handy and there is lots to see. 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
