Dedicated to the history of transport in the city, the London Transport Museum features heritage artifacts, incredible exhibitions, displays and more.

Lively exhibitions explore the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, its culture and society since 1800. Full of light, colour and movement, the London Transport Museum explores how transport has given the City its unique identity. The collection contains a wealth of heritage vehicles, posters, artworks, photographs, film and video footage, engineering drawings, uniforms, station signs and tickets.

Highlights include the iconic red London Routemaster bus, the world's first Underground steam train and the 'padded cell' - one of the first electric locomotive Underground trains dating back to 1890.

The galleries are full of interactive exhibits for young people and adults alike, including real buses and trains to play on, and drama characters bring stories alive in an entertaining and informative way.

Entry to this popular museum is completely free with a London Pass - saving £17. The savings don't stop there, the London Pass allows you to visit over 80 attractions for free so you can see more of London for less.
