Sutton Transport is opening its doors for the first time to visitors this week.
The museum, which was founded in 1875, is currently housed in a converted warehouse on the outskirts of the capital, but its opening is part of a new project to redevelop the area.
The company has been struggling to make ends meet as the area around Sutton Village has become increasingly polluted, but the museum will provide a new source of income for the local community.
Sutton Tourism, a subsidiary of Sutton Transport, will hold exhibitions and lectures, and it will provide free wi-fi.
It will also be able to sell local food and drink, and will be able provide more than 600 temporary staff, who will be responsible for the upkeep of the museum.
The staff will be paid the full wage of £16.50 an hour.
Sungliette said it hoped the project would make it easier for locals to visit the museum, and would encourage visitors to come for free.
“We are hoping that this will help people to come to Sutton Village, that this is an economic activity that people will want to visit, and that people are not just coming here to take a tour of Sutton Village but to enjoy the museum,” she said.
