Workers’ Project

Are you a tunneller, bricklayer, blacksmith, rigger, millwright or sawyer? Do you have an interest in history?

The Brunel Museum are looking for people with experience of construction work to help them tell the stories of historic workers who built the Thames Tunnel. 

Over a series of sessions, we will explore the lives of historic workers, who they were, what they achieved, and the reality and dangers of their working conditions. Together, we will decide on how to best present these stories in the museum’s new permanent exhibition. 

All participants will be paid London Living Wage for the time they commit to the project. 

This project is part of the wider Brunel Museum Reinvented Project that will transform the museum site and exhibition space. 

For more information on the project please see our Workers’ Project Information Sheet
