    A little pricey but totally worth it for transport nerds. Easily a few hours entertainment wandering round the generally quiet exhibitions. Lots of original vehicles and some brilliant models.

    A bit pricey. Worth it if you're interested in interactive museums and history. The poster gallery is wonderful. Pick out a few of your favorites and head up to the poster shop to get your very own!

    Great gift shop , make sure to look upstairs at the prints . Good museum for kids , make sure to ask for stamp card upon entry so kids want to explore all the museum . As it's paid entry it's quieter

    A classic! Kids just love this place, there's so much to see, from horse carriages to modern tube trains and buses. Not a bad way to take refuge for a few hours. Tickets are valid for a year!

    The pram storage is at the back right corner of the museum but if you want to follow the trail you'll have to retrace your steps to the entrance so your kids can start stamping the museum trail from 1

    A must see museum. It will take you around 3-4 hours to go around the place but believe me, you will enjoy it. If you buy the £15 ticket then you will have access for a whole year. Totally worth it!

    Incredibly fun, great for curious kids and adults alike spanning the entire history of transport from horse drawn carts to the tubes and buses we all recognise today.

    It's one of the places that your little ones will defiantly love.. Multiple playing areas, books, and driving simulations .. Don't miss it if you are in London.

    Spent more than 3 hours here. Love the old adverts, info on the famous logo and the WW section. There's a £15 admission for adults though but a well-worth visit.

    If you have a child as obsessed with trains as mine then do visit. £15 entry per adult will last for a whole year!!! It is really cool and not crazy busy (apart from school holiday season of course)

    A very compact, but informative museum with lots of hands-on activities for children. Tube can simulators are great fun! Tickets valid for 12 months.

    annual membership great deal-you can return for the same price as a daily entrance fee. The simulators are a lot of fun for all ages.

    Marvel over the latest digital advances and find out what's on the way in the next decade. The exhibition will also take visitors to see some predictions that didn't quite make it to fruition. Read more

    Always a great spot when it's raining. The entry is expensive but when you have your ticket you can use it as many times as you want for an entire year

    My son has a learning disability,I asked if he could have the concession price - yes. Bonus was that 1 carer goes free! Also, ticket is valid for a year so he can go back with another carer.

    The best museum in London: time-traveling lift, a chance to be a tube train driver. London pass owners are granted free entrance.

    Would ask for refund if I had payed the £15 entry fee. SCREAMING children running everywhere, not a museum, just a kids funfair. The FREE Science Museum is far superior.
