Experience a self-guided tour of Hamilton’s first Waterworks built in 1859, and pay tribute to the social and working life of the early industrial revolution. Discover the featured exhibit and see the museum in new ways using 3D images and glasses. Join the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers for a free ride on a scale model train. The museum is the only complete, intact Waterworks from the 19th century in North America, and preserves the oldest surviving Canadian-built 70-ton stationary steam engines – one of which is set in motion daily for demonstration purposes. Successful adaptation of an industrial space, Hamilton’s first Waterworks is a magnificent example of Italianate architecture, featuring massive stonework, detailed quoin blocks, Romanesque windows and a 150-foot chimney disguised as a Campanile bell tower.
