Explore the 1913 building, see our largest artifacts and learn about Hamilton’s first electric Pumphouse. Immerse yourself in the complete history of this fascinating museum, learn about the real people, hear the real story, and depart with a clear understanding of how this marvel of engineering truly worked.
