Visit the Brunel Museum

The Brunel Museum is located in an old Engine House in Rotherhithe, which was once part of the famous tunnel of Sir Marc Isambard Brunel, and still carries the East London Line under the Thames.

It is a relatively small museum, charting the work of Sir Marc Isambard Brunel and Isambard Kingdom Brunel and it is fitting that it is on the site of a project they worked on together, the tunnel itself. The exhibits do, however, cover their lives and works beyond that project.

The museum is open from 10am to 5pm almost every day and entry £2 (£1 concessions). It is a great place to pop into for a while if you're in the area, and you will almost certainly learn something.

  1. This a museum I would like to bring the students to and I would like to see it myself. What a shame Brunel only lived 50 odd years - truly clever minds don't arrive all that often.
