The Museum’s All Aboard play zone is perfect for younger visitors as it lets kids play conductor on a real bus, repair a mini Tube train with toy spanners, and work in the ‘Lost Property’ office. Children with a passion for art will love the new London by Design gallery, where an innovative audio-visual display projects a river of images on the floor which leads visitors on a journey to certain showcases in the exhibition.
Storytime, all ages welcome
Sessions will run daily at 11:00 and 14:00 and last approximately 20 minutes
Join the Museum for a storytime session and hear about the fleet of mysterious night buses which journey into the night as London goes to sleep. One special bus, the Midnight Bus, is the most mysterious of all, as it uses magical tricks to help the night-workers finish their jobs in time for sunrise.
Creative workshop, ages 3 – 12
Daily sessions from 11:30 and 14:30; activities last up to an hour
Inspired by the mosaic on display in the Night Shift exhibition London Transport Museum is inviting families to create their own. Using pieces of colourful card little ones can create a scene featuring the bus driver at the wheel or passengers in the bus, which can be taken home to keep or added to a 100m long collaborative artwork.
