Discover a secret side of the capital this October half term at the London Transport Museum.
From the antics of London’s nocturnal wildlife to weird and wonderful jobs on the transport network, the hidden lives of some of the city’s residents will be the theme of movement workshops, ‘make and take’ craft activities and a family trail around the Museum’s galleries this October half term.
What’s On at The London Transport Museum
- Movement workshops
From the sly, bushy-tailed red fox to the hooting, swooping tawny owl, learn about London’s urban wildlife and see the city from their perspective in an imaginative dance and movement workshop.
- Bat-tastic crafts
Get creative in a ‘make and take’ craft workshop that celebrates London’s bat population. Learn about these special creatures and make bat masks inspired by them to take home.
- Family Trail
Learn about hidden jobs on the transport network on a family trail that will weave through the Museum’s galleries. Spot heritage buses and trains, iconic transport posters and quirky objects along the way.
While at the Museum, families can visit the award-winning Hidden London exhibition in the Global Gallery to learn more about the protected bat colony at disused Highgate station as well as other secret locations on the transport network.
You’ll also be able to see real buses, Tube trains and maps spanning 200 years of the capital’s transport history, learn how to drive a modern-day Elizabeth line train in the Future Engineers gallery, and have fun climbing aboard an array of kid-sized London vehicles in the All Aboard play zone.
Family activities will run from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 October. Adult tickets to London Transport Museum cost £21 and include free return entry for a whole year. Kids go free! Book online at ltmusem.co.uk.
