The Canal Museum Trust (Operasting as London Canal Museum) Profile

The Canal Museum Trust is the charity behind London Canal Museum, a medium sized museum at King's Cross in central London which tells the story of the canals in the London area and of the half-forgotten commercial ice trade for which the museum building was first built. Two huge ice wells lie beneath the building and one can be viewed from above - these are uniquely preserved and displayed and the historic building is a rare part of our heritage that the Trust preserves for future generations. The canals are the main topic and there are exhibitions covering life on a narrowboat including a reconstructed cabin, cargo handling, canal arts, boats, the Regent's Canal, and locks. An exhibition Horse Power tells the story of the working horse in Victorian London, both on the canals and pulling carts through the streets. It includes a reconstruction of a stable stall from the building as it was in 1906. Ice cart horses were stabled there and there is also an exhibition about the ice trade.

The charity runs without any annual subsidy from the public purse or other source and is staffed mainly by volunteers.
