The London Museum of Water and Steam is dedicated to the history of water-pumping steam engines and the water supply of London.
The museum is housed in the impressive buildings of a Victorian water company. The museum has a nice collection of steam engines, interactive exhibitions and even a working steam train.
The heart of the museum is the collection of beautiful steam pump engines. These include the Cornish engines, which are located in their original engine houses, and the rotating engines, collected by the museum at gas stations throughout the country.
Together, the collection shows the most important developments in steam engine technology. In addition to these engines, they have also collected examples of diesel, electric, water and animal-driven pump engines.
Children under the age of 18 have free access.
