Museums & Galleries

The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology traces the progress of technology and steam engines from industrial revolution till date. Set in a waterworks building that is more than a century old, this interesting museum houses two of the oldest surviving examples of Canadian-made steam engines. While these 70-ton engines form the centerpiece of the museum, it houses several other permanent exhibits as well. The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology is best visited during the summer, when Live Steamer Days and other events spell a whole lot of fun for the entire family. Kids can undertake free miniature train rides that run along the length of the museum premises, or watch steam engines chug along the tracks. The museum also provides riveting tours that typically last under an hour.
