London's Transport Museum

Located in colorful Covent Garden, the London Transport Museum is one of the world's best known facilities dedicated to exploring the many nooks and crannies of this capital city's transport heritage. Fortunately for those who can't make it across the pond to Britain, the museum's website affords online visitors a small glimpse into the many items of interest featured in its exhibits and archives. To get some sense of the museum and its surroundings, visitors will want to view the Panoramas area, where they may view some of the galleries and a view of the exterior. The online exhibit area provides a small sampling of the museum's holdings, include one that explores the role of London's public transportation on the silver screen and a selection of the many lovely posters created for the transport system between 1909 and 1994. Finally, there is a nice selection of excerpts from promotional films produced by British Transport over the years, including a fascinating clip titled "A Trip on the Metropolitan Railway" from 1910. Of course, for those who will be visiting the museum in person, there is ample material on the museums' hours of operation and other germane details.
