The London Transport Museum

Posted in Tourist Attractions


If you love public transport, this is the museum for you. A small museum in the central part of London, Covent Garden, was inaugurated in 1980 and is considered to be the most important museum in the world with the most comprehensive vehicle repository and historical documents on the evolution of public transport across Europe.

The Museum of Transport of London is the best museum for children under the age of 7. The truth is that this museum is a great museum for all ages, but well structured for children.

It speaks very accurately about the chronological development of public transport in London and tells us about the history of the subway, trams and buses. There are many historic vehicles on which you can climb. Particularly interesting is the Metropolitan Train Simulator and the educational trail with the stamps on the boards. A lot of information on the history of public transport in London from the beginning of the 19th century to the present.

There are also two super play areas for children. One for boys and one for children under 7 years. There is a small cafe, a picnic area and a large shop that has some quality, lots of posters and some of the souvenirs of traditional museums.

Children entertain free while adults pay a £ 17.50 ticket; The ticket is personal and has a validity of 12 months. You need half day to visit the whole museum. Opening times and closing times are between 10am and 6pm Monday to Sunday.
