London Canal Museum

In Gatti's Ice House at King's Cross

We hope to re-open following the national lockdown week commencing 17th May if possible. In the meantime we have extra online exhibits, monthly Illustrated Talks continue on Zoom, there are books you can buy online, and our 2021 calendar is just 4.99 including UK postage.

We have implemented a plan to ensure that the museum is a safe environment to visit and we meet the VisitEngland "Good to Go" standard. Online, we have reproduced our current temporary exhibition online, see Industrial Islington for the full exhibition. We also have a new exhibition online of pictures of the Angel Canal Festival over the years. We have a new online virtual tour of Hanwell Locks, London's largest flight. There are additional activities to download on our learning pages and we're regularly updating our Tumblr Blog with new content about canals and the ice trade.

Check our What's On page for details and registration for online events. As usual you can explore the ice well with our webcam, and browse and buy archive pictures in our picture shop.

Our special covid-19 page gives the details on what we're doing and of some changes to the exhibitions due to the ongoing public health situation..
