Director’s Diary: Faraday Gas Engine & Brunel Bubbles

Dementia Action Week and Friday we host a history walk and drop in cafe for the Alzheimer Society. The utterly brilliant Professor Michael Faraday, Brunel’s friend and partner on the Gas Engine, suffered from dementia towards the end of his life. ‘My worldly faculties are slipping away day by day’
see blog April 2016  http://www.brunel-museum.org.uk/museums-and-wellbeing/  True the Gas Engine did not work, but it is not true that champagne at the Thames Tunnel Banquet 1827 was flat! Every Friday & Saturday at the Thames Tunnel we now serve the best bubbles (and food!) on our new Prosecco Terrace overlooking the river.
