An Overpriced, Short and lack lustre experience and for the price we were expecting far more. Save your money on the entry fee and just visit their gift shop as its far more entertaining for young children.

Please add wifi throughout the building, Many of your visitors are from other countries and don't have access. Additionally, wifi allows folks to get social and share, therefore attracting more visitors. It's a no-brainer.

London Transport Museum provides good background on the historical development of public transit in London including horse and motor trams, the underground, and buses. For an adult it is probably interesting once or twice. I certainly did learn quite a lot. It has many interactive...More

You get an open ticket so can visit as often as you like. Personally, even though we enjoyed the visit we felt it was aimed at younger family members, our youngest is 14 and we probably wouldn't make a second visit in a year. More
