BRUNEL MUSEUM in BERMONDSEY

BRUNEL MUSEUM in BERMONDSEY Brunel's First Project
Scheduled Ancient Monument
International Landmark, Oldest Tunnel in the Oldest Underground in the World


The Brunel Museum is open 10:00 to 17:00 seven days a week, with late openings for special events.
A small museum, but a big story in the award winning upper gallery. And below the trains still run through the Tunnel. The Museum gardens never close

Brunel's Last Project Biggest Ship in the World, First Modern Ocean Liner, the Ship that Changed Everything

In the lower gallery an exhibition about Brunel's greatest ship. A few hundred yards down the river on the Isle of Dogs, the launch ramps of SS Great Eastern are accessible by Thames Clipper via Masthouse Terrace Pier or London Walk three times a week. The launch ramps never close

Brunel's Grand Entrance Hall Underground Chamber half the size of Shakespeare's Globe Open after 150 years for concerts, opera, heritage talks, lectures and theatre. Details of these events, guided walks, heritage boat trips, shows and garden events can be found on the Events pages. Also available for society visits and private events.

The Grand Entrance Hall, where young Brunel nearly drowned, was the world's first underground theatre. Before the trains came, the chamber echoed with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders. With support from the Association of Independent Museums and Biffa, the Museum is fitting out a spectacular new gallery and underground theatre. Planning Approval has been given and work begins on site in 2015.
