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 4 Day London Travel Itinerary.

London Transport Museum, London Reviews - Write a Review
It is a really good place for kids. Lots and lots of hands on things for kids to do. The cafe is small and overpriced but typical for these places. The displays are amazing, and the history behind them was truly fascinating. The guy who was a police officer who was really there to talk about the history of the old buses was really good with kids, my son loved him! I took my kids ages 10 and 8 and they had a great time. It is right next to Covent Garden Market and the Jubilee Market which is also a lot of fun. The adult tickets are good for a full year and kids under 17 are free. A really great day out!
Great museum for all ages. Very informative on the history of public transport in London from the early nineteenth century right up to today. Super play areas for kids too. One for toddlers and another for kids under seven. The front of the 176 bus has a working bus computer that can make announcements too. The café is a bit on the small side but there's a picnic area and a big shop which has some quality stuff, loads of posters and some of the usual museum tat.
The Museum, as such, is pleasant and has some nice exhibits. There are good explanations of the historical development of transit in London. I mark this place down because of cost. Unless you are a completist or a transport geek, this place is very expensive for the amount of time you will be visiting - probably an hour or less. The fact that you are buying a ticket that is good for year is something of a sop, but when two of visited in September of 2017 the cost in US dollars worked out to $46 . If the pound goes up, it would be crazy expensive.
Great day oit with the kids. Good value for money and interesting. Good inactivity for kids of all ages. The ticket lasts for a year. The cafe was very high quality food but slow. Over all a great experience.
This was great. Like going back in time. Remembering how the old buses and trains were. Not a huge selection of vehicles but great to see them in good condition. Very child friendly with lots of information books and posters. £17 adult and under 17s free. The ticket lasts a year so you go revisit as much as you like. Good to pass away a few hours. There's a coffee shop and a souvenir shop aswell. And it's in Covent garden so in the centre of the West end.
