Museum of Steam and Technology

Witness the social and mechanical life of Canada’s early industrial revolution. Housed in a 160-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 museum offers guided tours, various permanent and changing exhibits, and features special events for the whole family, including Live Steamer Days from May through September.
