Donate and support our development plans. The Brunel Museum commemorates Brunel’s first and last projects: the first metro and the first modern ocean liner. We are a small registered charity depending on the generous support of the public.
Work has now begun to improve access and interpretation throughout this important International Landmark. in November 2016 Prince Edward re-opened the historic Grand Entrance Hall with a new entrance and staircase. Until then visitor access was via half height doorway, flood defence wall and scaffolding staircase.
In the next phase, ‘The Brunel Museum Reinvented’ , we have received initial support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project will transform the Museum, preserve the historic building, improve visitor facilities, double the current exhibition space, and show for the first time the recently-acquired and pre-eminent collection of Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel watercolours . We are putting on show one of the most significant feats of engineering in London’s history. Due to complete in 2023. Please contact us if you can help.
