Poster PlaygroundOffering a different perspective of the Poster Art 150 exhibition, the London Transport Museum is opening its doors late night this Friday for an evening of fun and games. The Poster Playground is strictly for adults only and provides the chance for guests to enjoy the exhibition with a side serving of 2-for-1 cocktails, giant games, face painting, a quiz and a scavenger hunt. Plus, Miss Ballooniverse will be on site creating balloon sculptures, a wandering magician will perform tricks up close and personal, and Victorian-style fortune telling will predict what's in store for the future. Visitors will also be able to vote for their favourite poster in The Siemens Poster Vote, which will reveal the most popular poster towards the end of the exhibition.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
