Take a peek into life at the beginning of Canada’s industrial revolution. Housed in a 147-year-old waterworks, the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology preserves two 70-ton steam engines. One engine operates every day. These Canadian-made engines are the oldest surviving examples in the nation. The Waterworks Pumping Station is a National Historic Site and a Civil and Power Engineering Landmark.
