London Transport Museum - Vehicles from the Museum's collectionLondon Transport Museum

The London Transport Museum’s collection originated in the 1920’s when the London General Omnibus Company decided to preserve 2 Victorian horse buses and an early motor bus. The museum shows us how important transport in London has been in the growth of the city since 1800. It proudly displays a red London bus, the world’s first underground steam train and the “padded cell” – a train carriage that dates back to the 1890’s. You can see the original artwork for Harry Beck’s London Underground map and there is plenty more to see and take part in (play with) for children of all ages.
