NileGuide Expert tip:
The museum's shop is full of unique London souvenirs ranging from model trains to Underground posters
Much more than just a museum of buses and trams and the mechanics of how to get from A to B, the complexity of the largest urban passenger transport network in the world is unraveled for fun at this bright, breezy hands-on 21st century museum, set in Covent Garden's lovely old flower market building. Hop aboard London's first omnibuses and trams, the world's first underground railway, and of course, try driving a modern tube train in the simulator. Over 25 life size models are available for inspection. Kids love trying on a bus driver's uniform and following the acitivy trail. What really excites and captures the imagination for adults though is how the transport system helped shape modern London with lots of interactive exhibits and nostalgic old newsreels.
