It seems that you have chosen the right day to arrive as the café opens at 8.00 on Saturday. I'm not sure about travelling times from airports as I was staying in the area and walked. The People's History Museum has a fantastic site with maps and could be of assistance to you. You are making a good choice in visiting the museum.
