London Transport Museum Depot

KidRated’s London Transport Museum Depot Top Tips:

The London Transport Museum Depot in Acton contains over 370,000 items not on display at the main London Transport Museum in Covent Garden such as vehicles, models and engineering drawings. Its extensive collection makes up one of the most important records of urban transport in the world.

 

Although its main purpose is to catalogue and conserve objects, the museum also opens to the public for special events, such as themed weekends. It is possible to participate on guided tours of the Depot. Hop on a 75-year-old tube train, hear about the person who lived on a Victorian train carriage, and even see the Underground train that the Queen drove!

 

Kids will love how interactive the museum is. They’ll also learn loads of secrets about London transport which will make travelling on the tube in future a lot more exciting.

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • The open weekends are great for families. There are always lots of free activities and kids go free.
  • Lots of traders bring transport goodies to sell and you can buy tube stickers for under £1.
  • There’s usually a free mini railway ride inside and a vintage bus ride to see the local area.
  • Even if you aren’t a ‘transport geek’ this is still a fantastic day out.
