Young people

Museums are fantastic places for young people to fuel their curiosity, take part in inspiring projects and achieve by working together.

Since 2010 dozens of young people (aged between 16 and 24) have helped London Transport Museum create exhibitions, run events, design and deliver family learning activities. The Museum gains from the energy, ideas and enthusiasm our young people bring. At the same time those young people develop valuable skills and experience.

Watch this video, made by our young people, to find out more about the impact this work has had on the museum and the young people involved.

Our work with young people really took off with a 3-year project called Stories of the World. You can watch more videos from that project on our YouTube Channel and see photos on our Flickr Photostream.

Is this for me?

Yes - If you’re aged 16-24, looking for something creative and constructive to do with your time, one of our young people’s projects could be perfect. You don’t have to know anything about museums. We just need you to have enthusiasm, opinions and not be afraid of hard work. You’ll get out as much as you put in.

Route into Work: Helping you find a job

Route into Work is a short pre-employment course for 16-24 year olds. It’s free, we will introduce you to employers and it’s all run in the Museum, not in a classroom. Find out more about Route into Work.
