  • Well this place really is great and I should have reviewed it after one of my previous visits. They pack so much stuff into this building and very easy to lose yourself for a couple of hours here even...  more »

  • This is a good museum tickets are priced at £5 they do have family tickets . Location is good ideally I would recommend organising the day so you can visit a few of the museums on the same day
  • I very much enjoyed my visit to the museum. I thought the entrance fee of £5 was cheap, considering the quality of my visitor experience and the fact that I paid more than that for a pint of beer the night before in a pub nearby. I had a great welcome from a volunteer staff member called Brian. A very friendly chap who is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about the museum. Thank you Brian and thank you everyone else who is involved in preserving this marvelous building and explaining it's history and that of Englands, and in particular London's canal transportation system.
  • Had a very interesting morning with a group of friends at the museum. We particularly enjoyed the films. Only comment would be we did the recommended canal walk in reverse and the info sheet I had downloaded was only in one direction. The website said that there was a leaflet for the reverse direction available at the museum but they had run out. We enjoyed the walk but I think we missed quite a lot as I was trying to follow the directions backwards on my phone. Would it be possible to have both on the website?
  • + Interesting and plenty of things for the kids to touch - £5 each for adults is a bit much for 2 very small floors -The bloke taking your money needs some customer service lessons. After asking if I had less than £20 note (for £12.50 total) I gave him £10 then all I got was £2.50, £2.50, £2.50 while I was counting the change. Then not another word, no thank you, no nothing, another chap stepped in and pointed to "go there first". Not very customer friendly.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at canal museum. The volunteer lady there was very friendly and knowledgeable. Recommended to visit
