Event Location

The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology, also known as the “Steam Museum”, is located on the site of the 1859 Hamilton Waterworks complex. This National Historic Site is recognized as a civil and power engineering landmark. Today the museum preserves two massive steam-powered beam engines, which pumped water in Hamilton from 1859 to 1910, as well as a collection of artifacts relating Hamilton’s industrial past. The museum interprets Hamilton’s relationship with water, steam power, and industrialisation.

The museum offers guided tours, public programs, and special events.
