The London Transport Museum

I particularly wanted to visit the London Transport Museum because this year is the 150th anniversary of the Tube and to commemorate the museum was holding an exhibition of Underground posters that I wanted to see.

The cost of admission is steep (£15!), but if you give them your name and sign the ticket it can be used to re-enter as many times as you like for a year – worth it if you go again with different people or there’s an exhibition on you particularly want to see.

When you enter you are advised to head to the top floor and then walk down – following the evolution of London’s early transport systems such as the horse and carriage to modern day trains, cars and buses, and even a look at what future transport might look like.

There are lots of interesting information panels with some that are suitably interactive for children (and big kids!) as well as models of different transport systems and the real deal.

I found the Museum very interesting and the exhibition on Underground Posters was excellent; I do intend to visit again, if only to feel like I’m getting my money’s worth! That being said, there are certainly a lot of things to see and I certainly didn’t feel like I’d wasted my time by going. An enjoyable visit, if on the pricier side of London attractions.
