The Museum is an educational charity run by volunteers and tells the story of one of the world’s great engineering dynasties. Brunel organised the world’s first underground concert party here in 1827, and the Museum celebrates and interprets music and theatre as well as engineering.

  • Would you like to volunteer with us?

    The Brunel Museum has only two full-time salaried employees and is entirely dependent on its team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers.

    Our volunteers help with a variety of tasks to make sure things run smoothly at the museum day to day including: welcoming people as they arrive, helping in the bookshop and the cafe gallery, the maintenance and development of the museum’s displays and gardens, and the successful staging of special events. If you would like to know more please get in touch!
