Not normally open to the public, Acton Depot open weekends are a fantastic opportunity to see some the hundreds of thousands of treasures stored in the working museum storehouse.
What to expect
These depot open days take place three times a year. That’s April, July and September, so don’t miss your chance! This April’s theme is The Art of the Poster. From propaganda to ettiquette — London Transport’s posters have been a part of London’s visual landscape for over 100 years. See some of London’s most iconic posters from times gone by to the present day. There’ll also be a series of themed activities for children and adults alike, including talks and special displays.
Tickets for Acton Depot Open Weekend
Tickets must be booked in advance and cost £15.00; children under 18 go for half-price (and free for under 3s). Children 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
