To mark the 150th anniversary of the Underground, this display brings Underground posters to life. Second Year MA Character Animation students from Central Saint Martins worked in groups to draw inspiration from the Museum’s collection of Underground posters. They have created a series of animations which celebrate the theme of London characters.
The displays reflect both the diversity of approach in Underground poster design, and the variety of characters that make up London, and the Underground’s, identity.

Two new exhibits, Tomorrow’s Journey and Future Scrapbook, have been opened in our Future gallery as part of our on-going collaboration with the Royal College of Art.
As it is the next generation who will shape, guide and create our future, post graduate design students from the Royal College of Art were asked tell us how they thought the Future City would be formed, not what the city would be, but what elements would go to make this future. This is a scrapbook of their thinking.
Each year the Museum showcases the best of the RCA Vehicle Design School student’s Final Show. This year we have five exhibits that could shape the way we travel in the London of tomorrow including a full size model of an innovative, electric tandem that could be seen as the next London Cycle Hire scheme.
A new exhibit illustrating the current stages of London’s Crossrail project has opened in the Museum’s Coming Soon to London gallery.
Crossrail is Europe’s largest construction project and here you can discover the length, breadth and depth of the project as we explain how this massive project is being built and what you can expect to see in 2018 when it opens.
The exhibit features details of the huge tunnel boring machines and details of the nine new stations being built across London, in maps, diagrams and video.
