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. Our upcoming events, including talks and Lates, as well as our Hidden London tours and heritage vehicle outings taking place between now and Sunday 31 May will not be going ahead.

Even though our doors will be closed, we will continue sharing the curious and inspiring history of London and its transport with you in our enewsletters and on TwitterInstagram and Facebook. You can also explore our marvellous collection online

Ticket holders may choose to rebook an event at a later date or donate the cost of your ticket to the Museum. More than 80% of our operating costs are raised through ticket sales and commercial activity so your generous support will be invaluable, helping us to continue our education and heritage work when we reopen. 

If you hold a ticket to one of the following events, you can transfer your ticket to a similar event being held later in the year. Please click the links below to find out more about other events that are planned.

If you hold a ticket to one of our talks, please contact our booking team.

  • Talk: Re-imagining Holden’s Sudbury Town (16 April)
  • Talk: London Transport at War (14 May)

Other family events, including our school holiday activities, Under 5s sessions and SEN Early/Evening Explorers will not be going ahead. 

If you have any questions, please read our FAQs on our Coronavirus page, and email our booking team for your options [email protected]

We look forward to welcoming you all back soon.
