Adult learning

We run a lively programme of talks, walking tours and workshops for adults alongside our exhibition programme and inspired by our collections. Find out what’s coming up in the What’s on events calendar. Book early – many events are very popular and can sell out quickly.

You can enjoy one of our Friday Late events, which include the best of our adult learning programme mixed with music and a licensed bar.

You can also make an appointment to visit our library to do independent research. Library staff can help with answering questions you might have about the past, present or future development of London’s transport.

Adult learning: Museum Depot

The Museum Depot at Acton holds the majority of our collections, and is a working store with over 6000 square metres of storage. If the Museum in Covent Garden is the tip of the iceberg for our collections, then the Depot is the iceberg itself!

The Depot opens to the public for monthly guided tours and themed open weekends.
