You can also get to Kew Bridge on the Underground. If you have
purchased a day ticket, it will work on the buses also, so you can
take a bus from the station to the museum.
I recommend Saturday at 3 PM, because that's when they actually run
the steam engines. From 3:00 to 3:30 they run the large (90" diameter
cylinder) walking beam engine that used to pump water to London.
Oh, the music museum's nice, too.
