Early Explorers @ London Transport Museum

April 13, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Early and Evening Explorers

For families with Special Educational Needs (SEN), including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), we open outside our regular hours on four special days. Enjoy the Museum at a quieter time, free from the general public, and with many of the gallery sounds turned off.

Explore our All Aboard family spaces in peace, have a go at our holiday activities, get hands-on with genuine parts of transport history, or make use of our sensory bags to support exploring the collection.

Advanced booking is essential as places are limited. Please call 020 7565 7298 to book your place now. Children and young people under 18 go free; adults charged general admission rate.


Elly has ridden the number 35 bus many times and watched all sorts of characters, many of whom come to populate her illustrations. Hear about some of the fascinating personalities she has encountered along the way.

Make-and-take activity: Everyone on the bus or train has their own story. Have a go at illustrating a character to ride on the bus. Are they a spy, or a scientist? An astronaut or an acrobat?

For families with additional needs, we will be opening the Museum with this activity running from 08:30 to 10:00 on Saturday 13 April for our Early Explorer Morning.

Saturday 13 April 2019

Morning: 08:30 onwards (open to the general public from 10:00)
