Brunel MuseumWithin the original engine house in Tunnel Road, SE16, this permanent exhibition commemorates the world's first subaqueous tunnel built by Sir Marc Isambard Brunel assisted by his son Isambard Kingdom Brunel. As well as commemorating Brunel's first project - the first metro, part of which is still in use as part of the East London Line today - and his last: the first modern ocean liner the Brunel Museum is also an ancient monument and listed building. It contains a restored J & G Rennie compound horizontal V steam pumping engine and events are regularly held in a restored shaft.
