Transit Museums, Europe
London Transport Museum

It is always hard to select a top museum, but for displays and presentation this is one of the best transit museums in the world. It has a great sampling of London's transport history. It has horsecars to trolleys, Trolley buses to Routemaster buses, an original tube stock train to more modern underground rolling stock. The gift shop is also fantastic. When in London make this a required stop!

The photos below are a mere sampling of the cars in their collection. Please enjoy!
