Waterworks Museum

2450 Beacon St., Boston, MA 02467 Get Directions


The museum, a 19th century building along the Chestnut Hill reservoir, opened in 2011. The museum pays homage to the three steam-powered pumping engines -- dubbed Allis, Worthington, and Leavitt -- that powered Boston's water supply in the early 20th century. The Great Engines hall is available for rent and holds 200 guests for standing receptions or 120 for seated dinners. The space offers high, Golden Age-style pine ceilings, large antique windows that overlook the reservoir, and views of the pumping engines.
