London Transport Museum

Following a two-year £22 million refurbishment and redesign project, the London Transport Museum worked with Conservation By Design to present the history of London’s transport system to the public.

New galleries tell the story of the development of London, its transport system and the people who travelled and worked on them over the last 200 years. Conservation By Design has supplied a vast range of Rothstein showcases to display this unique collection, whilst preserving it safely for the future.

Spokesperson from London Transport Museum, comments: “Bringing London Transport Museum up to date was a mammoth project a that required the creation of a completely new museum within our Grade II-listed Flower Market building. We worked with Conservation By Design to create a storage system within various galleries which offered more display space than before, whilst also radically improving the museum environment for visitors.

“Using Conservation By Design showcases allowed us to create a bespoke storage solution which is ideal for the diverse range of items we have on display to the public. From wall-mounted poster cases through to very large units within our Design Gallery, we have been able to benefit from the high quality products supplied by Conservation By Design.”

Denise Troughton, marketing manager for Conservation By Design, comments: “We are proud to be involved in helping London Transport Museum revitalize its collection and champion the essential role transport plays within the Capital. We have extensive experience supplying Rothstein showcases to prestigious institutions such as Museum of London, the National Gallery of Scotland and the National Museum of Ireland, and are able to offer expert conservation solutions no matter the size of the project.”
