Based in the heart of Covent Garden, 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.
Design lovers and transport enthusiasts alike can enjoy the Design for Travel gallery which showcases pioneering advertising posters and artworks. You'll see Harry Beck’s original artwork for his groundbreaking London Underground map and the story of the development of the world-famous roundel transport logo.
Young people and adults can enjoy the interactive galleries which include stepping aboard real buses and trains and having a go on a Tube driving simulator.
You can find the perfect gift or iconic London souvenir in our shop, or relax in our cafe bar overlooking Covent Garden Piazza. Entry to the shop and cafe is free.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, you can expect to find special safety measures in place due to the coronavirus pandemic. For more information, check direct with the venue ahead of your visit.
