Until late 2018 A postcard from London's Canals
In the early 20th Century, postcards were extensively used for short messages to family and friends. Many depicted attractive scenes and the canals of London feature in more than a few. Over the years the museum has added a collection of postcards to its library and many of these are reproduced and shown in public for the first time.
We offer a range of special events. On the first Thursday evening of each month (except August) there is an illustrated talk by a visiting speaker on a subject related to canals or industrial history. The admission charge is the same as for normal admission. The talk starts at 1930 and usually ends at around 2100.
Other types of event that we run:
- Summer tunnel boat trips on the second and fourth Sunday of May to October
- Towpath walks to Camden Town, led by a museum guide (Occasional dates)
- Painting classes, teaching the tradition of Roses and Castles (Normally in the winter)
- Activity days for children, normally on Wednesdays, in the spring, autumn, and in August on selected dates
- An annual opportunity to descend into the ice wells with a museum guide , normally in July, as part of the Festival of Archaeology.
- Other occasional events
