The London Museum of Water & Steam is planning to reopen their Community Garden and Splash Zone to families for free

From 16 July – 29 August the museum on Green Dragon Lane Brentford will be re-opening to the public every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11am - 3pm. Families are invited to relax, have fun and explore the Museum’s outside spaces.

While access to the Museum’s steam engines and historic buildings remain closed for the time-being, the Museum’s outdoor spaces will provide a variety of activities for families to enjoy.

Open spaces include the Museum’s community garden, where you are welcome to bring a picnic. You can also borrow one of the Museum’s fleet of scooters, and kick off along a trail though the reclaimed car park and historic coal yard. The Splash Zone will also be open, where you will see unexpected ways of moving water using gears, wheels, buckets, leavers and pumps. A supply of paper crafts, and other self-guided activities will also be available.

No pre-booking or payment is required, families can simply drop-in anytime during the Museum’s revised opening hours.

The Museum says the safety and comfort of visitors is their top priority, and each activity has been carefully assessed to ensure compliance with social distancing, and the sanitation of play equipment. The Museum welcomes families to bring their own refreshments as there will be no onsite catering available. Visitors should also note that for now, the Museum’s toilet facilities will not be open.

For more information, and answers to frequently asked questions please visit the Museum’s website.

The re-opening of the London Museum of Water and Steam has been made possible by the support of the Arts Council England.
