We run a range of talks throughout the year from our curators, guest speakers and transport experts.

Our temporary exhibitions are accompanied by a series of talks exploring subjects ranging from art and design, to architecture, transport, and city living. Enjoy an after-work drink in our Upper Deck café bar before settling down in our Cubic Theatre at Covent Garden for an inspiring and thought-provoking evening.

You can also enjoy talks from a range of speakers at our Museum Depot Open Weekends and Museum Lates.

Nearly 80 years after the start of the Blitz, we are marking the re-opening of our London Transport at War gallery with an evening event looking back at the crucial role London Transport played during the World Wars.

Keeping London moving during the worst days was an extraordinary achievement for London’s transport operators and staff, and their dedication to the war effort was realised in a number of ways. 

Join our Head Curator, Matt Brosnan, author and broadcaster Julie Summers, and founder of Twentieth Century Posters David Bownes for an engaging discussion and insight into the challenges of everyday life in wartime London, the opportunities it created, and the legacy still felt today in our modern city.
