Located on the site of Canada’s oldest waterworks, the Pump House museum attempts to connect its visitors to the industrial history of the area.
Its greatest asset; and artifact is the museum itself. The original steam-powered pumps which provided Kingston with its running water are on full display.
Originally built in 1850, the pumps are animated so that visitors can examine them as they really worked. It is truly a rarity to behold as there are only 6 such water stations preserved across North America. Tours are available on-site, both guided and unguided.
