There are lots of things for families to do at the Brunel Museum…
Half term at the Brunel Museum
Join us this half term, Monday 23rd – Friday 27th October for family and child friendly drop in sessions everyday between 1-3pm. We will be making potions, doing quizzes, making things, dressing up, story telling, sewing. Or you can meet us for a boat trip (10.40am daily Embankment).
More information here and on our events pages.
Make your own Thames Tunnel
It took Brunel 18 years to Tunnel under the Thames but with our craft kits your child can design and build and their own miniature Thames Tunnel in 18 minutes.
Ship of Blue Prints
Our ship shape picnic table in the lower garden has 100 tiles illustrating 100 Brunel projects. We have intentionally left some of the tiles blank. You and your child can sit admire Brunel’s plans and draw your own.
In our outdoor piazza we have three sculptured benches, Brunel Bridges in miniature, that show two different bridge constructions: arch and suspension, and Brunel’s last great Bridge (the Royal Albert – which features a train!) is a a mixture of both.
