Singing and stories

singing and stories

This half term, although the Museum may be closed we wanted to bring our popular singing and story sessions online. We've got two fun songs to singalong to, or listen to one of the amazing interactive stories about Underground characters real or fictional!

Singalong to our transport songs

Singalong to the classic song Wheels on the Bus. If you prefer to print the lyrics, you can download them here.

Singalong to the train driver getting their train ready for a day on the Underground. Download and print the lyrics here.

Down at the Depot
