London Transport Museum is closed

Your safety when visiting London Transport Museum, and the safety of our staff and volunteers, is our top priority.

In line with the latest advice from the Government and Public Health England, London Transport Museum and our Depot in Acton Town will be temporarily closed from 5pm on Tuesday 17 March until further notice. 

Closing our doors has put 80% of our income at risk. As a charity, this will have a lasting impact for our visitors and the children, young people and communities who take part in our education and employment programmes. 

Your support will help us reopen our doors and continue sharing the fascinating story of London and its transport, igniting people’s curiosity to shape the future.

Please help us by:

We look forward to welcoming you all back soon.
