Located in historic Rotherhithe, the Brunel Museum is on the site of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel under a river anywhere in the world. The Brunel Museum is housed in Marc Brunel’s original Engine House, and features a fascinating exhibition on the Thames Tunnel’s construction and history. It has a bookshop and its own café serving coffee and home-made cakes.
The museum is open from 10:00 to 17:00 seven days a week with frequent special events held throughout the year, such as tours of the tunnel shaft (formerly the Grand Entrance Hall), corporate events, book launches, company Awaydays and guided tours in the Rotherhithe area. It has increasingly become a significant resource for the local community, running playschemes in the summer holiday, welcoming schools throughout the year as part of Key Stage 2 history and hosting community events in the evening. It also provides visiting speakers to organisations throughout London.
