As one of London's premier tourist attractions reaching us is quick and easy. We're just 10 minutes from Junction 4 of the M1, 30 minutes from Central London by Tube, and a 7 minute bus ride from Colindale Underground Station. So why not visit?
By Road only 30 minutes from Central London. Follow the brown and white tourist signs from M25, M1 (Junction 4 Southbound), A41, A5 and North Circular (A406) roads.
There is parking on site, parking charges apply. The postcode NW9 5QW will direct you to the small industrial estate that is located next to the Museum. Please note that during periods of high demand such as the school holidays and weekends this can fill up very quickly. We would therefore suggest that during such times that you leave your car at home and visit us using public transport.
During the school holidays our Museum is a very popular destination. This means our car park fills quickly. To avoid lengthy queuing at the entrance of the car park, please consider using public transport, either by bus, underground or rail.
Route 303 passes the entrance to the Museum. Look at the entire route of the 303 bus on the TFL website. The bus stop for this service is located directly outside the exit of Colindale Underground station.

The Museum is situated at Colindale Underground on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line. Please alight at Colindale, not Hendon Central. Colindale is in Zone 4.
If you are not familiar with the London Underground, you can pick up a map free of charge from any Underground station or download one here. For useful ticketing information and service updates, visit the Transport for London website www.tfl.gov.uk.
To travel to the Museum, get on the Northern Line (the black line on the maps) travelling North. The Northern Line runs through King's Cross Station so this can be a useful place to pick it up.
The two branches of the Northern Line merge at Camden Town. You need to be on a train travelling to EDGWARE (known as the Edgware Branch). If you are on the other line (the High Barnet Branch), then change at Camden Town onto an Edgware train. Trains heading to Mill Hill East are on the High Barnet Branch. All the electronic displays will show which destination the train is heading for: Edgware, High Barnet or Mill Hill East.
Stay on the Northern Line and alight at Colindale station. Do not alight at Hendon Central - this is the station before Colindale. The journey should take around half an hour from King's Cross. There is only one exit from Colindale station. Turn left out of the station and walk straight along the road for about 10 minutes.
