The Museum of Power is set in seven acres of beautiful grounds, with the River Blackwater running through them, and is housed in a 1920s Steam Pumping Station, former generator hall and boiler house. The museum contains a fascinating collection, ranging from a working overhead machine shop to a petrol powered iron. The jewel in the museum’s crown is the ‘Lilleshall’ triple expansion steam pump now back on steam after 50 years.

The museum features many power-related exhibits that are of interest to all ages, and includes many working examples of power source machinery, equipment and tools. Outside the museum attractions include a model village, model railway and picnic area.

On non-event days there is FREE entry for visitors to explore the museum’s riverside walks, climb the observation platform or enjoy a cream tea in the Steam Pump Tearoom which offers an extensive selection of refreshments, however there is a charge for museum entry.

The museum has a busy calendar of events for all ages throughout the year. Take a look at their events page for full details.
