London Transport Museum
The London Transport Museum traces 200 years of the city's transit innovations, from a 19th-century horse-drawn omnibus to a wooden Metropolitan Railway coach to double-decker buses and the game-changing London Underground. Visitors can board many vehicles. There’s also a tube-driving simulator and a kid zone with mini-vehicles.
 
The Basics

London is home to the world’s oldest subway system, and the London Transport Museum pays tribute to its history, as well as the city’s iconic double-decker buses, public-hire bicycles, and more. The LT Museum houses an enormous collection of vintage trams, Underground carriages, retro Tube station signs, historical maps, and even staff uniforms. Book museum admission online in advance; the London Transport Museum is also included in the popular London Pass scheme.
