Hamilton Museum of Steam &Technology

DESCRIPTION

Witness the social and mechanical life of Canada’s early industrial revolution at the Hamilton Museum of Steam &Technology. Housed in a 150-year-old Waterworks, this National Historic Site preserves two 70-ton steam powered water pumping engines, perhaps the oldest surviving Canadian-built engines. The historic Hamilton Waterworks is a Civil and Power Engineering Landmark.

The Hamilton Museum of Steam &Technology offers guided tours, various permanent and changing exhibits and features special events for the whole family, including Live Steamer Days from May through October. View event listings here for exact dates and times.

Tours in hot weather
The historic Pump house is not fully accessible nor is it air conditioned or heated. In temperatures exceeding 30°C we offer shortened tours of the Pump house without operating the steam engines for the safety of our visitors and the preservation of the engines. We ask that you plan your visit accordingly.

Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology has been selected for the 2016 Certificate of Excellence, reflecting the consistently great reviews earned on TripAdvisor.
