Donate and support our development plans. The Brunel Museum commemorates Brunel’s first and last projects: the first metro and the first modern ocean liner. We are a small registered charity depending on the generous support of the public.

We are continually working to preserve and improve this important International Landmark. Our first phase, opened in November 2016, enhanced the historic Grand Entrance Hall with a new entrance, viewing platform, and staircase. Opened by Prince Edward, the Entrance Hall is now accessible to all visitors and a lively venue for events.

Our next project, ‘The Brunel Museum Reinvented’ will transform the whole Museum, putting one of the most significant feats of engineering in London’s history into a contemporary context as the birthplace of modern tunnelling systems. Due to complete in 2023, we will preserve the historic buildings, improve visitor facilities, double the current exhibition space, and show for the first time our recently acquired and pre-eminent collection of Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel watercolour designs.

We are delighted to have received initial support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund for ‘The Brunel Museum Reinvented’, which will allow us to develop further our plans for the site. We are now fundraising for the delivery phase of the project, to make these plans a reality.

As a registered charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations for these essential museum projects. Please contact us on if you can help.
