Event Summary

On Sunday 25th and Monday 26th August, the Museum will be celebrating the life and work of the great inventor and steam pioneer James Watt.

Housed within Hereford's Victorian water-pumping station, the Waterworks Museum will be open with working engines on display. The jewel in the crown is an 1895 Worth Mackenzie triple expansion engine steam engine, which is the oldest in situ engine of its kind still working in Britain.

Join us to see the power of the engines first hand, and learn about the fascinating story of the history of water. The museum exhibits tell important stories about each of Herefordshire’s market towns, and also of public water supply in Wales, the Marches and further afield.

There's lots for families to see, and visitors can picnic in the grounds and have fun in the hands-on children’s outdoor exhibit - the Heritage Water Park.

Price: Adults £7; Senior £6; Children under 16 - Free Adm
