Family activity details:
- Movement workshops
From the sly, bushy-tailed red fox to the hooting, swooping tawny owl, learn about London’s urban wildlife and see the city from their perspective in an imaginative dance and movement workshop.
- Bat-tastic crafts
Get creative in a ‘make and take’ craft workshop that celebrates London’s bat population – specifically the protected Daubenton species that reside in the closed-off tunnels of disused Highgate station. Learn about these special creatures and make bat masks inspired by them to take home.
- Family Trail
Weave around heritage buses and trains and past iconic transport posters and quirky objects on a trail through the Museum’s galleries. At each stop you’ll discover a ‘hidden job’ on the transport network.
- Unusual object handling
While at the Museum, families can visit the award-winning Hidden London exhibition in the Global Gallery to learn more about the protected bat colony at disused Highgate station as well as other secret locations on the transport network.
