2021/08/24 London Transport Museum
π 2021-08-24 01:01 in England2021, Museums
Last time I was in London, I went to see most of the bigger museums, but just like Paris, London is full of museums. That day, I had just enough time to go see the London Transport museum before it closed at 17:00. Well, except that they had timed entry and told me I'd have to wait 30mn before being allowed in, and left with just 1H to visit for a visit that they said takes about 2H. Sigh...

After getting my ticket, I looked around the store, and when the exit door happened to get opened, I entered throught the exit so that I'd have enough time to see everything. Kind of sad, but you do what you gotta do.

The museum itself was quite good actually, including showing how the underground was built early on, and used during the war as a bomb shelter:












During the war, the underground tunnels were closed to prevent cross flooding in case of bomb damage:







I feel thankful enough to have been in London in 1995, back when you could hop on a bus while it was running, but it as long ago as this picture:
