  • The staff and employees here were so friendly, they made me feel like I was being welcomed to my own home haha. The museum is small yet there's so much to explore. There's a ground and first floor gallery. Outside there's a section of canal too. There's also a small souvenir section toward the entrance. One of the best museums I have visited in London and with affordable prices too :) enjoyable for all audiences including those with less mobility.
  • Really interesting and comprehensive. Provides a great overview of London's canals from both engineering and social/economic perspectives. Separately, the building itself was designed as an ice cube storage, and the museum covers this archaic yet fascinating industry in great detail.
  • Very good for a day out. Not only about Canal but also about how ice 1st came to the United Kingdom.
  • Have you ever visited the Canal museum. If you are a big fan of the art - this museum will become your favourite place. On the 17th of May I'm planning to go there and enjoy the "Museums at Night" event. A nice chance to see the museum in a different light.
  • Where you can see all the lovely mansions and the beautiful boats that go passing by. I love staying in this place, very relaxing and many beautiful views to look on. Very relaxing and calming, that you will surely love.
