Listen to an intriguing story about a mysterious object that has turned up at the Lost Property Office. Nobody knows what it is or where it came from so London’s very best transport detective is brought in to help discover where the strange item came from and return it to its rightful owner.

At 11:30 and 2:30. Activities last up to an hour. Suitable for ages 3 to 12.

Have you ever lost something on your transport travels? Put on your detective hats and track down the lost property of London. Collect weird and wonderful things in your own pop-up lost property treasure trove.

Be Safe Week

Workshops for families and a free stamper card trail. Kids can have fun, meet safety experts and learn how to be safe at home, in public and when using public transport at London Transport Museum’s ‘Be Safe Week’. Kids will learn directly from the Police, London Fire Brigade, RNLI Lifeboats, Transport for London’s School Liaison Officers and other agencies, and will collect a stamp from each team of experts they visit.
