As well as our busy programme of family activities, we also run special events and sessions for families with children under 5 years old. Join us at the Museum or in Acton to discover the world of London’s transport through singing, dancing, making, play and stories.

Singing and Stories

Under 5s family sessions in Covent Garden

Singing and Stories

Date: Tuesdays during term-time at 10.45, 12.00, 13.45 and 15.00

Free with museum admission.

Join us to find out how people get around the city. With stories about hopping on a bus to the Museum and songs about catching a tube to London Town, there’s something for everyone. Sessions include singing and dancing, as well as the chance to see and touch objects from the Museum collection.

Songs and stories written and produced by Artburst

Families with children under 5 will also enjoy our special All Aboard playzone, where children can climb aboard our mini vehicles and dress up as a driver, mechanic or station staff. Plan your visit to the museum with our special family guide.

Local families are invited to join London Transport Museum in Acton!

Discover the world of London’s transport through play, making, singing and stories, for families and carers with children aged 5 and under.

Sessions have been inspired by local transport links, the area’s important history and input from local families, and the collection of over 320,000 objects in our Museum Depot.
