Take a peek into life at the beginning of Canada's industrial revolution. This magnificent example of 19th century public works architecture preserves two 45-foot high, 70-ton steam engines which pumped the first clean water to the city over 140 years ago. One engine operates as a demonstration every day!
The only surviving facility of its time in North America, the museum is a National Historic Site and a Civil and Power Engineering Landmark. These Canadian made engines are the oldest surviving examples in the nation.
The museum offers various permanent and changing exhibits. They also feature a wide range of special events that are fun for the whole family.
