As well as our busy programme of family activities, we also run special events and sessions for families with children under 5 years old. Join us at the Museum or in Acton to discover the world of London’s transport through singing, dancing, making, play and stories.

Local families are invited to join London Transport Museum in Acton!

Discover the world of London’s transport through play, making, singing and stories, for families and carers with children aged 5 and under.

Sessions have been inspired by local transport links, the area’s important history and input from local families, and the collection of over 320,000 objects in our Museum Depot.

Follow us each week around Acton at our local partner sites, then join us for our celebration sessions at the Depot.
