Steam museum

Join the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers in the 1913 Electric Pumphouse for a steam train day. Stay a while and build a bridge, try the bean bag coal toss and learn about simple machines.

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 museum is home to Hamilton’s first Waterworks built in 1859 to pump water from Lake Ontario to the citizens of Hamilton. Guided tours include a look at two 70-ton steam-powered engines preserved in their original context.
