London Transport Museum - We're reopening!


London Transport Museum
Welcome back
We're thrilled to be reopening the Museum from Thursday 3 December. The Museum, Shop and Canteen are all opening from 10:00 up until Christmas - and we've had a wintery makeover. Book your tickets online and escape the cold with our magical line-up of festivities.

 For families
Hunt around our collection of vintage vehicles for special winter roundels with a mix of transport trivia - find them all and you could win a mini Underground lightbox! Once you've found them, enjoy a cosy stop in our winter forest where you can enjoy a video story of the Utterly Awesome Underground journey Santa and his Tf-Elves make. You also might be lucky enough to spot the man in red himself at weekends and the week before Christmas.

For families with special educational needs, book a place at our Early Explorer morning on 12 December to enjoy the Museum at a quieter time, before we open to the general public and with many sounds turned off.

Things to do at home
Looking for something to keep you occupied at home? Keep an eye on our Activities page for winter and Christmas themed activities for all ages, like this colouring sheet of the iconic poster It is warmer below, by Frederick Charles Herrick, 1927.
Winter posters
Changing seasons have featured in London transport posters since the start of the 20th century.

Explore some of the most iconic winter posters, dating from 1909 to 2016, by a range of designers, all commissioned to promote London’s transport network. See them in the Museum in the Poster Parade and even more online.

Can you support us this Giving Tuesday?
Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day to give back. The Museum is a charity and we rely on your support to continue our work, now more than ever.

We’ve had to close our doors for 200 days this year and lost over £3 million in income. Your donations – big or small – have been a lifeline for the Museum and your ongoing support will help us restart our education programmes to ignite children’s curiosity in transport, support young people into transport industry careers and care for our world-leading collection.
