On the 13th and 14th of September 2014, London Transport Museum will open the doors of its Depot in Acton, West London for a weekend of activities focusing on the role of London’s Transport in the First World War.
Visitors will have access to the Depot’s vast collections store – which only opens to the public occasionally, and will be able to take part in an exciting line up of activities.
The Museum Depot houses the majority of London Transport Museum’s collections which cannot be displayed at the main Museum in Covent Garden. It opens to the public for occasional special events, including themed Open Weekends. Housed here are over 400,000 items of all types, including many original artworks and the Museum’s collection of over 5,000 posters and artworks, vehicles, signs, models, plans, maps, photographs, film, video and uniforms.
Together these form one of the most comprehensive and important records of urban transport anywhere in the world.
