The exhibitions explore the link between transport and the growth of modern London, its culture and society since 1800. The collection contains a wealth of heritage vehicles, posters, artworks, photographs, film and video footage, engineering drawings, uniforms, station signs and tickets.
It also shows how Harry Beck developed the design for the iconic map for the underground that has been in use since 1933 and whose format has been adopted by all major transport operators.
Highlights include the iconic red London Routemaster bus, the world's first Underground steam train and the 'padded cell' - one of the first electric locomotive Underground trains dating back to 1890.
2013 is the 150th Anniversary of the London Underground
On 9 January 1863 the world’s first underground train pulled out of Paddington station to make the first passenger journey - 3½-miles under the streets of London from Paddington to Farringdon and into the record books.
To get there from the Americana; take the Bakerloo Line southbound from Baker Street to Charing Cross.
