London Transport Museum

Families can delve into myth and magic at London Transport Museum this February half-term, with a week of family activities inspired by the themes of mythology, fairytales and nature in the Museum’s latest archive transport poster display.


Children can join lively Storytime sessions about Hermes,  the Greek God of travellers, and Make and Take activities where they can create their own headdress to take home.


Storytime session, all ages welcome

Sessions take place at 11:00 and 14:00 and last approximately 20 minutes

Young visitors can have fun with the Museum’s interactive storytelling and listen to a tale about Hermes, the Greek God of travellers. Join the Museum’s guest storyteller on a mythical adventure around London, inspired by Frederick Charles Herrick’s vibrant 1929 poster promoting travel in the Capital.


Make and Take activity, ages 3 to 12

Sessions take place at 11:30 – 12:45 and 14:30 – 15:45

Children can use feathers and flowers to create their own imaginative headdress, in a nod to the themes and characters depicted in the Myths and Fairytales poster display. Families can then join a parade around the Museum’s galleries to visit the display and see the magical characters up close.
