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.
