As Boston begins to thaw, join us for a visit to the Waterworks Museum. Located on the banks of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir, the museum is housed in a beautiful Richardsonian Romanesque building, which served as the original pump station for the city. The Waterworks Museum presents the industrial history of the country’s first metropolitan water system. We will have a unique opportunity to discuss the development of one of Boston’s key municipal systems surrounded by the machines that made it possible. A companion program to our March visit to the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation, these tours build upon the Labor and the Molasses Flood panel on February 28th.
$10 for OSMH Members, or $16 for joint ticket with Charles River Museum tour. Members have the option to bring one guest at the same price. The museum is accessible by the MBTA, with a short walk.
