Steam museum exterior

See how Hamilton's first Waterworks, built in 1859, contributed to the early industrial revolution on a free, family-friendly self-guided tour. The Pumphouse is a magnificent example of Italianate architecture, featuring massive stonework, detailed quoin blocks, Romaneqsue windows and a 150-foot chimney disguised as a Campanile bell tower. Inside, get up close with the two 70-ton steam engines – the oldest surviving Canadian-built engines of their kind.
