Events - 11 Sep 20

Museums are places to be entertained and inspired, and we try to make learning fun and our events unusual. The Brunels did not just build bridges and tunnels, they organised concert parties, dance events, underwater banquets, fairgrounds and shopping arcades. Brunel was not just an engineer, he was an impresario and showman.

  • Midnight Apothecary – Campfire Cocktails in the City!

    We have been working hard behind the scenes to adapt our unique cocktail garden to keep our guests and staff safe during this time, whilst maintaining the magical atmosphere that you love. As a result we are now open for strictly limited numbers from Thursday-Sunday. Booking is essential so follow the link to get your tickets!

    Our site will be divided into two spaces- the cocktail garden, with limited numbers of 30 people, and the Piazza- a sun-dappled terrace tucked alongside the Brunel Museum amongst Rotherhithe’s cobbled streets. Delicious food will be available courtesy of our friends at The Mayflower.

    PLUS… We will be offering ‘buy one, get one half price’ on cocktails  between 5pm – 7pm every Friday!

    We will have table service (with a table ordering app), one-way signage, plenty of hand sanitiser everywhere and everything in place to welcome you back and keep you safe.

  • Family Events

    We run family events during summer and school breaks.

    Entry to the museum and all activities will be FREE on the 19th September for Open House 2020.

    Along with displaying the architect’s drawings that form part of our community consultation, we will have a display of Sir Marc Brunel’s drawings – his vision of the Thames Tunnel from the early 1800s. Visitors may use these as inspiration to create their own works of art using coloured pencils, pastels, or watercolours.

    For younger children we will have black and white versions of the drawings to colour in and origami flowers to create an artistic Brunel paper garden full of colour and fluffy things!
