Splashzone and Indoor Exhibits

Formerly the Kew Bridge Pumping Station, The London Museum of Water and Steam houses an important collection of water pumping steam engines including the Grand Junction 90 which has a cylinder diameter of 90 inches and was used to pump water to London for 98 years. During 2013 and 2014, the museum underwent a major redevelopment which included new and improved facilities, a new cafe, outreach programmes and exhibitions.

The Waterworks gallery tells the story of London’s vital water supply and features a large Science Projects exhibit about different types of pumps that visitors can try for themselves. The outdoor Splash Zone has water exhibits where young visitors can splash about moving water using gears, wheels, buckets, levers, pumps and pipes.
