COVID-19 update

London Transport Museum is temporarily closed in line with the latest advice from the Government and Public Health England.

Following these closures, we have made some adjustments to our schools sessions programme and we won't be taking any school bookings for the start of the 2020 Autumn term. Our bookings will open once the staff are back in the office in October.

Please download our Frequently Asked Questions [PDF, 114KB] document for information concerning cancellations, rescheduling and bookings for next year.

London Transport Museum supports teachers to make the most of their visit by providing resources and events to help integrate their students’ experience into the classroom.

Home learning resources

These resources have been designed for students to access at home as part of their home learning, and connect with the key themes of Museum school visits.

While they are intended for students who would otherwise be on a visit to the Museum at this time, they are suitable for all students as part of their Home Learning.

Teachers Forum

A man and two women speaking across a table Our Teachers Forum allows teachers to find out about upcoming ideas, projects and changes to London Transport Museum's schools programmes, as well as some of the exciting ways we are supporting schools within London including our commitment to supporting schools on their Artsmark journey.

We feel it’s important to create opportunities to listen to teachers to ensure that our programmes continue to meet the needs of their audiences and we want to listen to you!

Our Teachers Forum meets once a term at either our museum in Covent Garden or our depot in Acton. If you would like to be kept informed about our next event then please email [email protected].

Our Depot in Acton offers us a unique opportunity to open our Museum Store to Primary and Secondary school groups to explore our collection.

We are excited to talk to Primary and Secondary teachers to discuss ways in which we can support classroom learning at the Depot in inspiring ways. We would also like to share news on future opportunities to collaborate with us on our schools learning programmes.

Next event: Date TBC
