Christmas travel tickets – Mind the Map Artwork

We’re still busy working on some great new content for next year’s exhibition, ‘Mind the Map‘.

I recently put a call out for used transport tickets that may be used by artist Susan Stockwell to create a large-scale world map. Contributions have been pouring in – thank you! – and we’ve received a huge range of tickets from both the UK and from overseas.

But of course we’re always on the lookout for more! Along with UK tickets we’re really keen to receive travel tickets you may have from cities featured in the Museum’s World City Walk gallery – New Delhi, Shanghai, Tokyo, New York and Paris. But don’t let that limit you – we’re keen to include tickets from all over.

A definite highlight so far was a collection of old London bus tickets from the mid-1900s that were slipped, along with letters and other treasures, through the floorboards of a house by three young children, only to be discovered by subsequent residents years later.

Susan has been busy sorting the tickets and is finalising the design of the artwork, but is eagerly awaiting further contributions before she commits to sticking them down.

If you’re planning any trips over Christmas then we’d love to receive any travel tickets from your journeys. Once again, you can post your tickets and stories to:
