London transport lotto
london-transport-lotto23 – 30 May 2009
12:00, 14:00 & 15:00

Join us for London transport lotto – a game of bingo with a transport twist; instead of numbers our bingo cards show objects in and around the Museum.

During the game, find out fun facts behind every square, discover the name of Covent Garden’s Underground ghost, why a bus was converted to house pigeons and which Tube station has the longest escalator.  There will be an opportunity to handle objects from the Museum’s collection, wear a conductor’s hat and get to grips with a working Gibson ticket machine.

The winner will take home a special limited edition badge.

All events are free to accompanied children under 16
Adults £10.00
Senior Citizens £8.00
Students £6.00

Hands-on Galleries

In addition to hands-on exhibits, we have two galleries purpose built  for our younger visitors:

Interchange
Children aged from 7 to 11 can explore the Museum’s collection in this interactive hands-on area. They can discover the range of people who have worked on public transport in London over the last 200 years, try on replica costumes and guess the origins of our mystery objects. The highlight of a visit to the gallery is a chance to drive our Optare bus.

All aboard!
Children under 6 can let their imaginations run wild as they climb aboard our fun versions of a bus, train, Tube and taxi. They can take the wheel, becoming a driver for the day, or bump around with the other passengers in the back. They can also explore our miniature London, taking control of the transport system, moving buses and trains around London’s most famous landmarks.
