May 1/2 Term : London Transport Museum : Poster People Workshops & Free Trail


Bus down to The London Transport Museum in Covent Garden over the holidays, you not only get a whole years admission from your ticket price, but you can really play with the buses, and get creative too. Activities are happening daily during 1/2 term.

Help us celebrate 150 years of the London Underground with a series of activities for families during the school holidays.  Join us for Storytime sessions which tell the most exciting moments of the Undergrounds’ history and stay afterwards to ‘Make and Take’ using a range of materials to make something special to remember your visit.

Entrance to the Museum is free for children under 16. Adult admission is £15.00 (£11.50 concessions) and tickets allow unlimited entry for a whole year.

If you’re getting prepared here is your printable FREE TRAIL directly from the museum. Test your detective skills with our Track it down trail! Amusingly illustrated by Guardian cartoonist Stephen Appleby this free trail helps families track down key exhibits and get the most from a tour of the galleries.
