Using the online enquiries

Drawing of workers digging a canal

There are seven related "enquiries" which are designed to be used by children. Each enquiry consistes of sevel "slides". The first poses a question and the other six provide illustrated answers. Many of the "slides" have additional information or enlarged illustrations available in popup boxes. The illustrations are a mixture of archive material, specially drawn illustrations, and photographs,and there are also some tables of extra information and text.

The enquiries can be used as an entertaining educational resource on their own but the best way to use them is as preparation for a visit to the London Canal Museum. You will find everything you need to know to plan your visit on the museum's main website.

The enquiries are extremely easy to use from the menu tabs at the top of the screen. Try one yourself! To access the enquiries, go to the Learning Zone.
