London Transport Museum brings its collection to life online for digital visitors to enjoy at home
Explore hidden gems from the Museum’s collection up-close in Google Arts and Culture galleries.



LONDON.- From curating virtual galleries and building an online hub for its much-loved family fun activities to compiling transport-themed Spotify playlists, London Transport Museum is open online and sharing its collection to help people feel inspired and uplifted while they settle into staying indoors.

For families who were looking forward to visiting the Museum in Covent Garden over the Easter holidays, a new online activity hub will offer fun problem-solving games, word searches, quizzes and colouring-in pages to help recreate the experience at home. Available to download from today (Monday 6 April) these activities are inspired by ‘Billy Brown of London Town’ - a vintage cartoon character who used playful rhymes to keep passengers on their best behaviour when using public transport during the Second World War.

Families looking for additional sources of entertainment during the holidays can enjoy up to 25% off bestselling toys and games from the Museum’s online shop until 26 April, including London Underground Monopoly and a Tube line themed Topple Tower.

London Transport Museum is a charity. Every purchase will help the Museum to reopen its doors and continue its work with children, young people and communities, igniting their curiosity to shape the future.

During its closure, London Transport Museum will continue to bring its collection to life online for kids and adults alike, by adding new objects and digital exhibitions to its Google Arts & Culture site.

Since its launch in 2019, more than 500 artefacts and artworks from the Museum’s collection have been digitised on the platform — including many objects housed at its Depot in Acton and not on display in the Museum in Covent Garden.

Visitors to Google Arts & Culture can browse examples of outstanding 20th century graphic art from the Museum’s transport poster collection, see the intricate details of historic maps, photographs, and vehicles revealed, discover little-known facts about the Underground and find out which objects are curator favourites and why.

A behind the scenes video tour of the Museum’s highly acclaimed Hidden London exhibition is also available on the Museum’s YouTube channel , featuring transport historian and broadcaster Tim Dunn.

Inspired by some of London’s most secret spaces belonging to the oldest subterranean railway in the world, Hidden London: the Exhibition brings together the largest number of rare archive photos, objects, vintage posters, diagrams and decorative tiles from disused stations in one location for the first time.

This video tour with Tim Dunn takes visitors through a warren of atmospheric and immersive recreated secret spaces on the Tube network that have incredible stories to tell about London’s past and present.

New content will be shared regularly on the Museum’s website and across its social media channels
