Brunel Museum

MS Discovered by MadelineSchneider




This small volunteer-run museum charts Isambard Kingdom Brunel's engineering career and includes a visit of the tunnel shaft, the entrance to the first underwater tunnel in the world opened in 1843.

Insider Tip

Look out for the pop-events at the museum, including the Midnight Apothecary, a candlelit evening of herb-infused cocktails and smores round firepits on the museum's rooftop garden.
