900 Woodward Avenue, Hamilton Ontario L8N 1E2
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. The museum has recently been expanded with new exhibits and facilities to preserve Hamilton's industrial heritage.
