London Transport Museum Museums
The Piazza, Covent Garden
Covering a wide spectrum of materials and media, including vehicles, rolling stock, posters, signs, uniforms, photographs, ephemera, maps and engineering drawings, the Museum's collections make up the most comprehensive record of urban mass transit in the world. The Museum preserves and displays important collections reflecting all aspects of the history of public transport in London.
The collection was started in the 1920s with the preservation of two Victorian horse buses and an early B-type motor bus. The Museum's collections now consist of over 350 000 items, including not only road and rail vehicles, but also posters, photographs, films, drawings, maps, models, uniforms, signs and equipment of all kinds.
The earliest rail item is a Metropolitan Railway locomotive built in 1866 for the world's first underground railway.
Today the Museum has a unique collection of 74 historic vehicles that once served the capital. Our busy shop is fantastic for gifts, souvenirs, posters, clothing, books, videos and models, reflecting the diversity of the Museum's collections.
