The Museum Depot in Acton is our working museum store - a treasure trove of over 320,000 objects.
Three times a year, we throw open the doors and welcome thousands of visitors to explore. Discover rare road and rail vehicles spanning over 100 years, signs, ceramic tiles, original posters, ephemera, ticket machines, and more.
Depot Open Weekends take place three times a year, typically in April, July and September. With talks, activities, tours and fun for all the family, these festival-style events are an exciting opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy one of the most comprehensive collections of urban transport anywhere in the world.
2020 Open Weekends
Great transport innovations (26 - 27 September)
The ‘Great Transport Innovations’ Depot Open Weekend on 26 and 27 September is no longer able to go ahead as planned.
Families can transfer their tickets for the Open Weekend for a summer family fun season date free of charge. Please contact our booking team ([email protected]) to arrange the transfer and let us know how many children will be in your party.
The new summer season has been designed especially for families, giving them the chance to explore this rarely seen transport treasure trove during the summer holidays after months in lockdown.
