Le musée du transport de Londres, ou le LT Museum montre les différentes moyens de transport situé à Covent Garden, Londres, cherche à conserver et expliquer le patrimoine des transports de la capitale britannique. La majorité des expositions du musée commença dans la collection London Transport, mais depuis la création de Transport for London (TfL) en 2000, les attributions du musée se sont étendues pour couvrir tous les aspects du transport dans la ville londonienne.
Good place for kids and adults alike. You will spend about 2-3 hours here and there are activities through the day for kids. Better buy online tickets and collect here to avoid the lines. They have a cloakroom where you can put away the winter coats. The tickets, though a bit pricey, are valid for a year. So keep it around. Kids love the place!!
This was an amazing museum. We went with a one and two year old while visiting London. The adults learned plenty and the kids had a blast running about. The museum is set up to be super engaging for little people and if we lived in London we would visit monthly. There is history, life sized models and on the ground floor a hands on area for kids.
Fabulous experience for adults and especially for children. Lots to do and brilliant displays for children to interact with and learn. They can pretend to drive real buses taxis and tube trains, climb on board various old trams and buses. And there is a great play area for dressing up and they can mend a tube train. Kids under 7 will love the play areas. There is a small cafe that does sandwiches and teas and coffees.
Rather pricey, but very well done. It was nice to experience sitting on some of vehicles, a few more where possible would be even better. Changing exhibitions. I thought the underground posters were spectacular. I was surprised that I wasn’t given the option of Gift Aiding when buying online. But where you do get value for money is that the ticket lasts a year and there is a free cloakroom. Warning. If you cannot bear running & screaming kids, give this a miss - to address the balance, if you are a family then kids (I believe) are free and it makes for a fantastic afternoon. Shop, Toilets & Cafe inside too.
Probably one of the best museums in the whole of London. Not just about London transport but geared up for the whole of the history of transport in London, long before the name transport for London existed. Come at the right time during the school holidays and you can meet actors who can answer questions from those who experienced the times of which they represent, interact with many of the vehicles, with plenty of hands-on things to do for active and inquisitive children. There's a cafe here in the bookshop both of which are highly recommended.
