The London Transport Museum

I.    Read the article and say what it is about

Transport doesn’t just take people from A to B; it links people and places. The London Transport Museum tells the story of London and its transport system over the last 200 years. The Museum’s collections include great examples of means of transport and objects used over the last century. The Museum does not only explore the past but also looks at present-day transport and ideas for city transportation in the future. https://cdn.londonandpartners.com/-/media/images/london/visit/things-to-do/sightseeing/london-attractions/london-transport-museum/8267-640x360-londontransportmuseum_buses_640.jpg

Сhildren love the London Transport Museum and often don’t want to leave it because they have a lot of fun. It’s not every day you get to drive a tube train simulator, climb in and out of double-decker buses and fly the Emirates cable car.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/86/Omnibus_horse_drawn_bus,_London_Transport_Museum_4_April_2013.jpgEven going up in the lift is fun because it’s a time machine. You step in near the entrance in 2019 and as it goes up, you can watch the years counting down until you arrive on the second floor in 19th century London.

Here, you can climb inside a horse-drawn omnibus and hear voices from the different characters on the streets of Victorian London – a boy who sweeps the roads, a Thames waterman and a bus driver. There are buttons to press, levers (рычаги / рычагі) to pull and an activity booklet for children to collect stamps as they go around.

If you take the time machine lift down to the first floor you will find out about the world’s first underground train, which was powered by steam from 1863 to 1905. Along the way, you can listen to the workmen who dug the first underground train tunnel. In the 1920s and 1930s, the new railway lines made travel much easier so weekend trips became popular. You can sit inside a train carriage and listen to people’s conversations. https://freedfromtime.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/london-transport-museum-motorised-omnibus-dsc_4769.jpg

But the biggest attraction for kids is the ground floor which is basically a gigantic playground. Children can jump aboard a bus, walk through into a cable car and then a boat where they can blow the horn before climbing down into a workshop. Your kids can spend hours in All Aboard, the fantastic new play zone. You can repair a mini Tube train, make driver announcements (объявления / абявы) and laugh at the funny sounds on some of the noisy seats. There’s also a dressing-up area where you can dress up as a riverboat captain or a train driver. But best of all, as many children think, is the Tube train simulator where you can experience what it’s like to be a driver on the London Underground.
