Very disappointing. Having to queue to get in despite having paid in advance not acceptable and then tickets weren't even checked, could have just walked in. Badly organised with no indication of what was where. Needs signage and better descriptions of items on view. Totally...More

It was great to see the old buses & tubes and be able to board these. We also enjoyed the tube simulator. Personally I felt £17.50 was a bit steep. I’ve visited a couple of transport museums in the country which were free and a...More
