The London Gas Museum was a museum in the London Borough of Newham in east London, England.

It was situated on Twelvetrees Crescent, on the eastern side of the River Lea and near to Bromley-by-Bow tube station. Amongst other exhibits, it held a gas-powered radio, and an assortment of survey maps for gas companies.

Closure[edit]

In 1998, the museum started preparing to close, and distributed its collections to various entities.[1] The former contents are currently in storage in Leicester Gas Museum; and controlled by The National Gas Museum Trust, who hope to create a permanent display.
