We have moved our current temporary exhibition online, see Industrial Islington for the full exhibition. We have a new online virtual tour of Hanwell Locks, London's largest flight. We've published two new books recently, a new edition of Coffee and Ices, by Felicity Kinross, and The East End Canal Tales by Carolyn Clark. Get these and other museum publications to read at home from our Buy Books page. 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.
We're running online events including our monthly illustrated talks on the first Thursday of the month using Zoom, and other online events as well, check our What's On page for details and registration. Whilst there is no venue hire during lockdown, couples planning marriage can book a live online tour of the museum as a wedding venue. And as usual you can explore the ice well with our webcam, and browse and buy archive pictures in our picture shop. We have a team working from home on our oral history collection during lockdown, follow us on Soundcloud to hear more fascinating reminiscences. And if you meet on Zoom look at our new Zoom Backgrounds
Our special covid-19 page gives the details on what we're doing.
