The Press Office at London Transport Museum welcomes enquiries from journalists about the Museum in Covent Garden and the Museum Depot in Acton. 

London Transport Museum is situated in the heart of Covent Garden and filled with stunning exhibits; the Museum explores the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, culture and society since 1800.

Historic vehicles, world-famous posters and the very best objects from the Museum’s extraordinary collection are brought together to tell the story of London’s development and the part transport played in defining the unique identity of the city. The Museum and its collections are a window into the past, present and future of how transport keeps London moving, working and growing, and makes life in our city better.
