I have wanted to go here for a long time, but due to the opening times being 9-5, if you work, you can only really visit on a weekend/bank holiday. We visited yesterday (Easter Monday), which was perhaps the wrong decision as we queued for ages in the rain, and were greeted into the building by screaming children running everywhere. It was quite a stressful experience, and due to the high ceilings, the noisiness really does carry. I think it would be much better to visit on a day where children are not on holiday (however, this may only work if the museum would open late). Other than the noise and large crowds, I think the museum is very interesting and it's great to see all the old tube trains, buses and trams.

If you have an hour to spare and you happen to be in Covent Garden, take a look at this place. Just be prepared for long queues outside the museum. Personally, I feel the entry price, £17.50 per adult, is a bit much considering the museum isn't that big and you can view the exhibitions within an hour. However, it may be more worthwhile if you have kids as there's a play area and it looks like a lot of fun. Overall, I had a good experience visiting the museum. You can even board on some of the exhibitions which gave you a feel of how travel used to be. I learned a lot about the history and development of London's transport which I actually enjoyed.

It was incredibly busy on bank holiday Monday. Long queues outside the museum in the rain. The entry price, £17 per adult, is too expensive. Although you do get re-entry for a year. And you can find 2-4-1 deals if you travel by train. The museum is really hot and carrying coats and chasing wild children is quite a task. We went with our young daughter and she loved it. If you go without children I imagine you’d hate it as it’s overrun with hysterical and manic children. It’s very interactive for children. I certainly needed a stiff drink afterwards to calm my nerves after the onslaught of all the unruly children, including my own.

People of all ages seem to enjoy this museum. There is a special kiddies area which is very popular. This museum traces the history of public transportation in London. There are examples of the types of vehicles and the history is very interesting. It is expensive, but worth it. The gift shop is very good as well.

This was the spur of the moment visit, you take the lift to the top floor and walk down through the ages from a Sedan Chair to the newest London Taxi to Underground Train.

Its something different, from the top floor with horse drawn busses (complete with horse droppings) to the really nice café, well worth a visit.
