  • What an interesting find! I was a little unsure from the outside but glad I went for it, for it's a fine little museum. It tells the comprehensive story of London's and Britain's canals, with interactive displays and things to see, such as a mocked up barge. The old ice pit was very cool, as was the story of ice cream! They sell it in the gift shop too! Upstairs contains an informative gallery with visuals and audios too. My only criticism was that the only video playing was a little lackluster, enjoyable though old grainy footage can be! I think a ten minute introduction film to canals in general would be a great addition. But that's only a minor point, for it's a great place. There's even a little terrace outside by the canal basin, great for some fresh air. All for a fiver, which is terrific value. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Highly interesting and educational, not just about British canals. The setting -- the first ice cream factory in London! How cool is that! -- is perfect, and the Canal Museum is an idea starting point for walks along the canal. I didn't know the first thing about London's waterways but from now on, I'll make sure to explore much more. London Canal Museum was certainly a nice surprise. Highly recommended!
