Crossrail exhibition opens at the London Transport Museum

Visitors to the London Transport Museum can now take a look at the future of transport in the Capital, as well as its history, following the opening of the Breakthrough: Crossrail’s tunnelling story exhibition.

The exhibition at the Covent Garden museum features a large, 5m high, walk-through installation of a cross-section of a Crossrail tunnel to allow visitors to experience what it might be like to stand in a tunnel which is under construction deep underground. The tunnel contains a computer simulation of the tunnel boring machines (TBMs) being used on the scheme.

Visitors can also learn about the way Crossrail is being built under London, play interactive tunnelling games and hear the first hand experiences of those who work underground.

The exhibition is open until 30 August and is included in the £16 adult admission fee but is free for children under 17 years of age. The museum shop will also be stocking a range of Crossrail-themed memorabilia.
