  • Very good museum, seems small but a lot to see and do. Very interesting and informative. Lots of displays, re-construction of canal boat you could go in (Computer module for disabled).  more »
  • When in London most folks think of the British Museum or the Tate as must see. Well I would now add this delightful and very informative museum to that list. Any person with even a passing interest ab...  more »
  • Originally an ice house, horses were stabled upstairs. Best bits for me were the old black and white films and listening to people about working or living by the canals.  more »

  • 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.
