London Canal Museum

Time Out says

The people, vessels, trade and wildlife of the capital’s canals are explored in the London Canal Museum. The museum is housed in a former nineteenth-century ice warehouse, used by Carlo Gatti for his ice cream, and includes an exhibit on the little-known trade in ice imported from Norway and once stored in two huge wells beneath the museum. This is perhaps the most interesting part of the London Canal Museum; the collection looking at the history of the waterways and those who worked in them is rather sparse by comparison. The canalside walk from here to Camden Town is most enjoyable too.
