Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology
Inside Hamilton’s Museums helps to satisfy a growing curiosity about Canada’s steel capital as it evolves into a post-industrial city and cultural destination. In this special excerpt we visit Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology, which displays the wondrous twin waterworks engines that supplied the City of Hamilton with fresh, safe drinking water. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the dignified limestone building, providing fascinating historical background and insight into the waterworks.
