About the Crystal Palace Museum

Museum devoted to the story and memorabilia of The Crystal Palace exhibition centre.

The museum is housed in the only surviving building constructed by the Crystal Palace Company built around 1880 as a lecture room for the Crystal Palace Company's School of Practical Engineering.

The story of both palaces is told in a series of unique images supplemented by large scaled models of the Crystal Palace plus showcases displaying ceramics and other items associated with the Crystal Palace including remnants from the original building.

Adjacent to the museum is the base of Brunel's water tower.
