Help us fund out future

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum but reopening our doors during this time of extraordinary uncertainty comes with big financial challenges. It costs us £25,000 to open our Museum each day.

Can you make a donation today to help fund our future?


London Transport Museum has stood proudly in Covent Garden for 40 years and we hope to be here for many more for you to enjoy. 

By donating, you will not only help us to reopen the Museum and care for our world-leading collection but you will also help us deliver our vital employability and skills programmes to get young Londoners back on their feet with job opportunities and apprenticeships in the transport industry.

Ways to donate: 

Make a donation - big or small, your generosity will make a huge difference.

Unlike national museums we do not receive regular funding from central government and we need to raise 80% of our own income from ticket sales, our shop, venue hire and fundraising.

Your donations will help us to continue sharing London’s journey.
