London Transport Museum Depot Open WeekendThe London Transport Museum Depot opens its doors for its annual behind-the-scenes Open Weekend this September for a weekend of activities focusing on the role of London's Transport in the First World War. Look out for the 1914 B-type bus which was converted into a wartime 'Battle Bus' to transport troops to the Front Line, meet the team taking the B-type to France, and take park in heritage bus runs around Acton. Housing the majority of the London Transport Museum's collections which cannot be displayed at the main Covent Garden location, the Depot is home to more than 400,000 objects and this is one of the few occasions when the Acton Depot is open to the public, giving visitors a chance to explore the Museum's rarely seen treasures. There are also posters and artworks, engineering drawings, signs and ephemera, and a marvellous collection of historic road and rail vehicles. Further activities include creative workshops, storytelling, miniature tram and railway rides, heritage bus rides and curator-led tours.
