  • A little disappointed by this Museum, not much to see and a bit of a mess. Needs a good spring clean and sort out there was a mention of a tour of the underground section, but this didn’t seem to happ...  more »
  • Very lucky to have found this place on TimeOuts list of things to do in London when it's raining. Lovely staff who gave us a complete tour of the place and shared some fascinating information with us....  more »
  • On the day we visited there was filming going on in the lower chamber so only a quick 30s visit was possible. The museum upstairs had a few displays many of which didn’t work sadly. Downstairs there w...  more »

  • Most people don't know this place in London heart, but once you find this place you can't forget. We been first time just lot have wine glass in nice relaxing place. I loved this place and I recommend this place not just to visit museum but also have spent brake.
  • Brunel and his son were extraordinarily engineers who transformed our modern world through tunnels, trains, ships and bridges. The museum is a small reminder of Marc Brunels tunnel achievements and offers a brief tour of the sunken tunnel entrance. Worth a look if you're in Canada Water.
  • Viewing a much restored engine-room and drum shaft, a small garden and some historical 'titbits' represent thin gruel and slim pickings for the admission price. 'The Brunel Synopsis' would be a more appropriate nomenclature. Also stage special events here. (I have not attended) Atmospheric with friendly staff and adequate cafe. Pleasant but certainly not memorable except for that riven tree near the entrance.
  • Spent a very enjoyable hour and a half or so at this museum. While the space itself is small, we had a fantastic guide who told us the story of the Brunels. He (I think Kevin?) really brought the exhibition to life in his telling - I wouldn't have got as much out of this at all without the explanation. Relatively high entry fee - but well worth it if you have a guide!
  • What a fantastic hidden gem. Visiting from Bristol, I am very impressed with this museum and the Volunteers there. I highly recommend this place to anyone with or without an interest because I'm sure once you leave you will have learnt something new and potentially have a new and exciting interest to look into further and research. I will, for sure, be promoting this place in Bristol.
