Free floor plans of the Museum are available online, or on arrival and will help you navigate around the Museum. Our free stamper trail will help you follow the story told in the Museum displays. To begin your journey, take the lift back in time to level 2. The family station offers creative activities to do while you explore the Museum, or when you get home to reflect on your visit.

Children can enjoy an interactive fleet of mini vehicles, drive a real bus, and dress up in uniforms to become a mechanic, riverboat captain, station announcer or driver. All Aboard is located on the ground floor and level 1 of the Museum. Look out for the Baby DLR the Museum’s first dedicated area for babies.
