It is a really good place for kids. Lots and lots of hands on things for kids to do. The cafe is small and overpriced but typical for these places. The displays are amazing, and the history behind them was truly fascinating. The guy who was a police officer who was really there to talk about the history of the old buses was really good with kids, my son loved him! I took my kids ages 10 and 8 and they had a great time. It is right next to Covent Garden Market and the Jubilee Market which is also a lot of fun. The adult tickets are good for a full year and kids under 17 are free. A really great day out!

Very enjoyable and have probably lost track of my annual ticket. Cafe seemed to have finished serving hot food 4pm (??) and drink prices a bit steep. Went off season but assume in high season and school holidays it is rammed so would avoid that. Nice bookshop I will revisit and select from in due course.


Compact site packed full of London transport history. Loved the old tube & train carriages and old London buses. Love the memorabilia & the great book section upstairs in the shop. Really great for children with lots of hands on stuff. Staff were helpful & friendly.

Great museum for all ages. Very informative on the history of public transport in London from the early nineteenth century right up to today. Super play areas for kids too. One for toddlers and another for kids under seven. The front of the 176 bus has a working bus computer that can make announcements too. The café is a bit on the small side but there's a picnic area and a big shop which has some quality stuff, loads of posters and some of the usual museum tat.

The Museum, as such, is pleasant and has some nice exhibits. There are good explanations of the historical development of transit in London. I mark this place down because of cost. Unless you are a completist or a transport geek, this place is very expensive for the amount of time you will be visiting - probably an hour or less. The fact that you are buying a ticket that is good for year is something of a sop, but when two of visited in September of 2017 the cost in US dollars worked out to $46 . If the pound goes up, it would be crazy expensive.
