Description: The Pump House Steam Museum is located in one of Canada’s oldest original water works – where steam-powered pumps provided the first running water to Kingston residents from 1851. Only six similar preserved water pumping stations remain in North America. The museum’s most incredible artifact is the museum itself – where the original pumps are animated and visitors can discover exactly how they worked. Guided or self-guided tours show how steam power was an essential element of the industrial development of Canada and pumped water played a key role in Kingston’s history. Check our website for our latest exhibit on display in the Engineerium, and explore the Gordon C. Leitch Discovery Centre filled with games, toys and activities for inquiring young minds. The Museum is home to a stunning collection of model railway trains. An elaborate multi-level O scale train can be set in motion by the push of a button, and the HO scale train set from the opening of the iconic CBC children’s show ‘The Friendly Giant’ is on display.
