Canal Museum, Stoke Bruerne

The exhibition held at Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum is part of a wider collection of over 12,000 objects. The objects tell the fascinating story of Britain’s waterways, covering the last 300 years. The focus at the Museum is on the people that lived and worked on the canals and navigable rivers. Here are some of the Museum highlights:

- The reimagined boat-builder’s workshop

- Displays of traditional boaters’ clothing and personal artefacts 

- Working models of narrowboats, barges, butties and tugs

Opened in 1963 Stoke Bruerne was one of the UK’s first canal museums. You’ll find it nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside housed within a historic corn mill by the water. The excellent range of exhibits have free audio commentary to guide you. Look out for special events and days out throughout the year.
