London Transport Museum

London Transport Museum

The London Transport Museum based in Covent Garden is fun for all the family, if your kids want to see a Big Red London Bus or Taxi this is the place for you.


By conserving and explaining the Capital city’s transport heritage, London Transport Museum offers people an understanding of the Capital’s past development and engages them in the debate about its future.

Our brand new family play zone, All Aboard, is opening on Saturday 28 March, just in time for the Easter holidays! Children will be able to play on a real bus, repair a mini Tube train, play in the ‘Lost Property’ office, ‘sail’ the Thames Nipper, and serve passengers in the Nipper café. They can also fly the Emirates Air Line cable car, make driver announcements and help customers at the mini information desk. Designed for babies and children up to 7 years, the Museum has for the first time designed an area specifically for infants at the ‘Baby DLR’, equipped with an interactive wall and building blocks.

    We had a great morning at the London Transport Museum with our children aged 5.5 years, 3 years and 9 weeks. There are lots of trains, buses etc for the kids to clamber on. You can pick up a card at the front desk that the kids can get stamped at various locations around the museum. There’s also a play area on the ground floor near the cafe for under 6’s. There is also a feeding room next door to the cafe. The museum is extremely buggy friendly!
