We tell some of the most important regional stories: health, people, brilliant engineers and magnificent architecture. It’s all about how Boston grew to the city it is today.
You can explore the remarkable machinery, wonder at the massive wrenches needed to keep the pumps in working order, and marvel at the beautiful architecture. You can go on tours, from walking around a stunning reservoir, the centerpiece of an extraordinary landscaping project, to all day bus excursions with experts on all things water-related. You can attend special events, talks, or if you are a teacher, organize a school fieldtrip. In the future, you will be able to hear podcasts of some of our events!
If that’s not enough, come because it’s a fun way to learn about your city’s history!
Throughout the year, the Waterworks Museum hosts a variety of special evening and weekend programs. Check our calendar regularly for updates.
