    I went to the Waterworks Museum one Saturday. I didn’t know what to expect going in but was pleasantly surprised by what I found. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Boston’s water supply. One of the volunteers, Damian, gave us an hour long tour of the huge water-pumping machinery. His enthusiasm really added a lot to the experience. Inside, there are some very impressive video displays and posters. It’s obvious that a lot of work went into turning the old pumping station into a museum. 10-year-old me would been blown away by the three-story pumps and cranks. Kids with an interest in machines would definitely like this place. It isn’t very large, so you only need about an hour to see everything. I think the museum would get more visitors if they highlighted the huge pumps on their signs. If I had known how interesting it would be, I would have gone sooner.

    This free museum is located next to the Chesnut Hill Reservoir in Boston, near the Cleveland Circle T stop. There are massive old steam pumps preserved in a beautiful old building. The museum recently opened, and the displays are very modern. If you liked the clockworks in “Hugo”, here three are real-life three story high machines here. This is real 3-D. The only unfortunate thing is that they are no longer running.
