Depot Open Weekends
The Museum Depot at Acton houses the majority of the Museum's collections which are not on display in the main Museum in Covent Garden. With 400,000 items, including many original works of art used for the Museum's celebrated poster collection, vehicles, signs, models, photographs, engineering drawings and uniforms, it’s a wonderful treasure trove that together form one of the most comprehensive and important records of urban transport anywhere in the world.
Acton Open Weekends
Dates: 15-16 March
Time: 11.00 – 17.00
We’re opening up the Museum Depot at Acton on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 March 2014, this time in celebration of buses. Big ones, small ones, and even teeny weeny ones.
Our bus bonanza is part of National Science and Engineering week and features static bus displays, bus pit tours, a bouncy bus, curator led small object store tours, a (small) bus rally, and bus themed films and talks. We will also be displaying a number of layouts from various exhibitors, with a special emphasis on buses. Look out for the LEGO and BAYKO bus displays and join our make and takes and storytelling for families.
Prices: £10, £8
