About The Brunel Museum

A museum, art gallery and events space. This amazing landmark in Rotherhithe village is a culture hub in this part of south London with an all year around series of music concerts, theatre and performances. The Brunel Museum is open seven days a week from 10:00 until 17:00 and later for special events (see publicity). Entry to the Brunel Museum is £6 and £4 for concessions. Children under 16 free of charge. Entry to Great Eastern launch ramps is free. Special events are priced separately.

The Museum is an educational charity run by volunteers and tells the story of one of the world’s great engineering dynasties. Brunel organised the world’s first underground concert party here in 1827, and the Museum celebrates and interprets music and theatre as well as engineering.

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 drawing visitors locally and from all over the world. Below the trains still run through the Tunnel. The Museum gardens are always open…

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 ways of SS Great Eastern are accessible by Thames Clipper via Masthouse Terrace Pier or London Walk three times a week. The launch ways are always open…

Brunel’s Grand Entrance Hall

Underground Chamber half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe

After 150 years the chamber is open every day for heritage talks and lectures. Also advertised evenings for concerts, opera, and theatre. Details of these events, guided walks, heritage boat trips, shows and garden events can be found on the What’s On 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. Under the National Heritage Landmarks Partnership Scheme, and with support from the Association of Independent Museums and Biffa, the Museum is fitting out a spectacular new gallery and underground theatre.

Grade II* listed structure and the world’s first caisson. The chamber is half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe, and is open again for the first time in a hundred and fifty years. This is where work on the tunnel began, and where Isambard Kingdom Brunel nearly drowned. When it opened in 1843 it was the world’s most popular visitor attraction, with a million visitors in the first three months. There are guided tours every lunchtime, and regular music and theatre events, but entry is by half size doorway and temporary staircase. Work has begun to convert the chamber into gallery and performance space and the centrepiece of the Museum.

You come by boat to the museum at 10.45 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays,Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays or by walking tours on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. See guided walking tour from Bermondsey or Embankment tube stations.
