Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology – National Historic Site

Hamilton’s first Waterworks pays tribute to the social and working life of the early industrial revolution and the spirit of Canada’s ‘Ambitious City’. The museum preserves the oldest surviving Canadian-built 70-ton stationary steam engines – one of which is set in motion daily for demonstration purposes. Experience on-demand guided tours and special events for the whole family including drop-in programming during Family Day, March Break and Christmas, and Live Steamer Days in partnership with the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers from May through October. Please note that due to the historic nature of the Waterworks, many areas are not fully accessible to strollers or wheelchairs; please call ahead for details.
