Through the museum’s extensive collection of vintage carriages and buses, scale models, prints and art, you can explore more than 200 years of transport in the capital.

The collection traces its roots to the 1920s when the London General Omnibus Company chose to preserve an early motorbus and two Victorian horse buses for posterity.

Since then the museum has expanded significantly, now encompassing more than 50,000 items. It (aptly) moved around London before finding a permanent home in Covent Garden’s iron and glass flower market building in 1980.
