Mr Monkey visits the Museum in Docklands, 17th May

"It's supposed to be just like looking down the tunnel"

When Mr Monkey returned to the Museum in Docklands on Saturday morning, he scampered up to Level 2 and started to explore the history of London's docklands from 1820 to the present. In the City and River gallery he saw some interesting* expanding peepshows showing Marc Isembard Brunel's Wapping to Rotherhithe tunnel (now part of the East London underground line), examined a large model of St. Katharine's dock, and found out that at one time London had the biggest whaling fleet in the world.
