London truly has the most distinctive museums and the London transport Museum is one of them. This entire museum is dedicated to the development of Public transport in the city from the early past and it also tries to predict the future of public transport.
To the Londoner, the questions about the future are perhaps more significant but a tourist is sure to marvel at the well preserved past of London transport.
Carriages, Buses, trains and trams that once soared through the London Street are carefully preserved for historical reflection. Situated in the busy area of Covent Garden, the place is certain to be a charming, rainy day delight. London Transport Museum is the must see tourist attraction that should be added in 5 Day London Travel Itinerary.

So well curated! Especially good for children and the "friends" contribute their knowledge and help too. Great staff! This visit I really enjoyed the Poster Girls exhibition, of posters by women artists. Great to see the war bus there this time.
The museum is amazing and has come on in leaps and bounds since I was last here some 20 odd yrs ago! Plenty for children of all sizes to see and do, the stamp trail is great for children and kept my 6yr old entertained as did the play area with buses and trains aplenty. Santa was a lovely addition (Dec visit!) Can't wait to use our annual pass as we will definitely be back soon!
Conveniently situated at Covent Garden. A good range of exhibits and interactive displays. Some of the vehicles can be boarded. Good quality cafe but seating area inadequate. £15 for concessions was a bit much. They say you can go back as often as you want in a year, but I don't think the exhibits change, so why would you want to go back?
Such a lovely place. My car and train obsessed boys absolutely loved it (other than the slightly creepy mannequins staged in some vehicles) the play areas are wonderful, different to anything they've played on before and well thought out and interesting. While the initial ticket price can be a little expensive it was definitely worth it and can be used for a whole year
A great museum to take the kids to, so they can see how transportation in the capital has evolved over the past few hundred years. There were some brilliant live exhibits, with someone playing the part of a WW1 Tommy who tells the story of the requisitioned London busses for troop transportation. Buy your tickets online to beat the queue at the door: they're good for a years admission and kids go free too!
