10. The London Transport Museum
The London Transport Museum artfully tells the story of the history and culture of London’s transportation and how its evolution affected the growth of the entire city. The first registered item of public transportation was the sedan chair, and an example artifact is housed in the museum along with more famous inventions, like the first electric underground train, the horse-drawn omnibus built in 1805, and the iconic red, double-decker London bus. Also available to investigate is the Design for Travel section, which exhibits posters and artwork advertising various types of transportation. In addition to the museum itself, the building includes an inventive play area for children which involves miniaturized versions of the vehicles shown in the rest of the museum.
These ten museums will not only catapult you into the rich history and culture of London but also lead you on an incredible, multi-sensory, budget-friendly adventure through time, space and memory. Their treasures are simply waiting to be discovered by the inquisitive and adventurous traveler. Dare to explore, and enjoy the ride!
