Directions

Continue along Rotherhithe Street. The Brunel Museum is a little further on, on the right.

Description

The museum is on the site of the only project both Marc and Isambard Kingdom Brunel worked on together, the Thames Tunnel. The museum's building contained the steam engines used to keep pumping the Thames Tunnel dry of water.

The museum, situated above the Thames Tunnel, has sculpture gardens and a newly opened compass garden with a giant sundial on the roof of the Grand Entrance Hall.
