Get inspired by the engineering on Crossrail, one of the largest megaprojects ever undertaken in the UK. 

Uncover the lesser-known stories from the project in a new family exhibition where you can take a journey deep underground into the tunnels and stations with never-before-seen construction video, hear personal stories from the new generation of engineers who are making it happen, and learn how the project is benefitting the capital and the whole country through interactive maps.

Objects on display also include a drone used as part of construction, the original prototype of the new Elizabeth line roundel and a selection of archaeological finds unearthed during the build.

A new exhibition which explores stories of remarkable engineering feats, including Crossrail. Visitors can experience a large audio-visual tunnel projection and a life-size recreation of the tunnelling shield that dug the world's first electric Tube railway in 1890.

Archaeologists working on Crossrail have donated a piece of 55-million-year-old amber and a woolly mammoth jawbone fragment unearthed in London to the Natural History Museum.

Two of them are now on display in the Museum's Lasting Impressions gallery.

Found at Crossrail's Canary Wharf site, they are part of a vast and diverse set of specimens that have been dug up during the railway's construction.
