It's in Covent Garden, a place where you also have a great market and many tourist attractions, so you can spend a whole day there that will have a lot to see. The museum preserves and explains all the heritage of the transport sector in London. In the building where it is, there was originally a fruit market, and in 1980 the museum was located. It has several rooms where you can see different cars and all kinds of motor vehicles from late 19th and 20th century. Trams, rail vehicles, trolleybuses and, of course, buses, without a doubt the best known transport in the city.

In one of the interactive rooms you can discover how trains have evolved from 1870 to the modern models that exist today. In addition, each room has its special “something”, such as some in which it seems that you are moving to old London with photographs, posters, local curiosities and historical films. Among some of its exhibitions you can see "the first underground in the world", "the future of transport", "London transport in the 20s and 30s", "London transport icons" or "Victorian London transport".
