London Transport Museum

KidRated’s London Transport Museum Top Tips:

From Victorian railways of the 1830s to the green transport projects planned for 2025, the London Transport Museum will teach you all you ever wanted to know about London’s thriving transport networks. The museum is divided into themes, examining the development of transport systems across the ages.


View a Metropolitan Line train carriage from the only surviving steam engine from the 1860s. Learn about how the Metropolitan Railway’s connection to London’s north-west suburbs helped London become the commuter-based city it is today. Or discover how transport was affected by WWII, even housing thousands during the Blitz.


Still curious about transport in London, why not check out the London Transport Museum Depot?

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • Make use of the free cloakroom which can store buggies too. The Museum is fully accessible so you can keep buggy with you, if you prefer.
  • Kids and grownups will like trying to drive a tube train and dressing up to pretend to drive a bus too.
  • The ‘All Aboard’ play area is lovely for little kids and the Lower Deck cafe is next to it so you can get a coffee. Families can also bring their own lunch to eat in this area.
  • The shop is fantastic and really well stocked with great books and gift ideas.
