The Museum explores the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, its culture and society since 1800. Highlights include the iconic red London bus, the world’s first Underground steam train and the padded cell – a train carriage dating back to the 1890s.

The Design for Travel gallery showcases pioneering advertising posters and artworks, which include Harry Beck’s original artwork for his groundbreaking London Underground map and the story of the development of the world-famous roundel transport logo.

The galleries are full of interactive exhibits for young people and adults alike, including real buses and trains.
