Does any one know what happened to this? It used to be in the building behind the Oxo Tower (where the names of the Muses are stencilled onto the brick work. It would change theme every-so-often, and was always interactive.

The two times I went it was great for (Big) kids. We went to the Museum of the Unknown and the Museum of the Body, and both were lots of fun.

I go past the building sometimes and nothing else seems to be there.

It was only ever going to be a temporary thing.

Originally Coin Street Community Builders planned to put some kind of museum of the River Thames into the Bargehouse, but I don't know what their long-term plan for the space is these days.

I know this is read by people at CSCB, so maybe someone would like to comment?

At the moment they let the Bargehouse out to all sorts of organisations for temporary exhibitions. The latest opens this week:
