PumpHouse Museum is located in one of Canada’s oldest original waterworks – where steam-powered pumps provided the first running water to Kingston residents from 1851. Only six similar preserved water pumping plants 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 and unique programming are available.
