This is a most interesting museum which documents the history and development of London Transport.There’s something of interest for all ages.I must comment on how child friendly it is.My 2 year old grandson was in seventh heaven .There are loads of interactive exhibits which children can simulate driving a train or bus.As a Thomas Tank Engine fan we had to drag him away from the museum having a toddler tantrum because we were obliged to leave at closing time

It was great day and I thought it was awesome to all the transport and watched a video of people talking about transport during ww2

It was more than expected as we have enjoyed listening to the tour guide recording as the time syncing was accurate

Great fun and an easy way to see all the sights on your bucket list

Really well spaced out. Great interactive museum for all ages.
