Our Exhibitions

Most of our exhibitions are visual and use text and pictures to explain the fascinating story of the canal system, and to interpret the items on display.

Archive film is shown. There are four short films.

The interactive "Talking Head" of Carlo Gatti has sub-titles for all of Mr. Gatti's verbal answers to your questions.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome. Please do not bring pet animals

Induction Loop

An induction loop is permanently installed at the combined reception and shop desk, located close to the main entrance. The microphone is fitted to the side of the computer monitor so please stand in that area to talk to staff, so that the microphone picks up their voice.
