Every Thursday in September and October the Museum will open after hours between 18.30 and 21:00 for adults looking to combine a visit to a cultural attraction with meeting friends after work – all in an environment where capacities are carefully managed by pre-booking.
Tickets for the weekly Museum After Dark event will be £15 and include a drink to provide what organisers describe as a “private view experience”. A special themed quiz exploring film, music, art and design – all with a transport focus – will also form part of proceedings.
“We are reopening into uncertain times, especially for the former honey pot of the West End. Like the theatres, restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and museums around us, we have made a great success of our location and its high footfall. This has been much diminished,” states London Transport Museum director Sam Mullins OBE.
“We are awakening the Museum from its slumber and we need the patter of both tiny and bigger feet to put us back on our journey to inspire you with the stories of this great city.”
London Transport Museum has officially reopened this week, equipped with Visit Britain’s ‘Good to Go’ accreditation and a raft of safety measures which include new one-way routes, enhanced cleaning regimes and changing to cash-free contactless payments.
The Museum’s opening hours during the day are now 11:00 to 19:00, except for Thursdays and Sundays when the Museum will close at 18:00. The later start is designed to ensure visitors don’t need to use public transport at peak commuter times.
