The £22.4m refurbishment project of Covent Garden venue is complete
London’s Transport Museum reopened this week following a £22.4m refurbishment project.
The scheme, which received £9.4m in funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, saw the museum fitted with a 100-seat education room, new galleries and extra display space.
The Covent Garden museum, which is housed in a Victorian flower market, tells the story of London’s transport systems over the last 200 years. Developments in cities around the world, including Delhi, New York and Tokyo are also on display.
New galleries include interactive exhibitions such a tube driver’s cabin and a section predicting the future look of public transport.
