London Transport Museum is a registered charity, dedicated to transport preservation and education in London.

If you are a UK taxpayer paying for yourself and/or your family group to enter the museum, you can choose to make a Gift Aid donation. By doing so the government allows us to reclaim the tax you’ve already paid at no cost to yourself - that's 25p for every £1, making a £15 admission worth around £18.75 to the museum! Gift Aid is therefore an easy and tax effective way of giving to charities in the UK.

Please become a Gift Aid visitor by saying ‘yes’ when you are asked at the till point. Thank you for your support.
