London Transport Museum in Covent Garden has nine days of fun activities planned for families over the May half-term with children going free!
An exciting array of family activities can be found at the London Transport Museum this May half-term including:
‘My Visit to London Transport Museum’ activity:
Curiosities are afoot for visitors as they are invited to explore the Museum’s galleries whilst collecting facts, drawing pictures and taking part in tasks on their activity sheets.
There is a good selection of tasks for this activity such as finding the big red Routemaster bus and working out how many passengers can travel on it, discovering what shape Underground tunnels are and counting the wheels on the historic Omnibus. When the tasks are complete, children can create their own origami book at home which will be a lovely and crafty reminder of their visit to the Museum. The ‘make and take’ book will feature fun activity sections in a bid to encourage visitors to interact with the Museum collection.
Get ‘wheely’ creative:
The get ‘wheely’ activity is an artist-led drop-in workshop which supports children in getting creative by making tracks and encourages exploration and experimentation. Younger visitors can also take part in a communal piece of art with a good collection of vehicular toys which they can use to make bright coloured marks. Older children can design their own spirograph wheel design using a variety of London vehicle templates.
Storytelling with an Underground Mouse:
Children under 7 can relax whilst filling their imaginations with the fantastic story ‘The Curious Adventure of the Underground Mouse’.
Families can also enjoy the following at the London Transport Museum:
All of the May half-term activities will be taking place at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza and will run from 10:00 until 16:00 from Saturday the 28th of May to Sunday the 5th of June 2022. The London Tourism Awards saw the London Transport Museum named recently as London Visitor Attraction of the Year.
