Housed in a former Pumping Station and newly refurbished, the museum contains a fascinating collection which ranges from a working overhead machine shop to a petrol powered iron. The jewel in our crown is the 'Lilleshall' triple expansion steam pump now back on steam after 50 years.
FREE entry (NON event days) for you to explore our riverside walks, climb our observation platform or enjoy a cream tea in our Steam Pump Tearoom, however there is a charge for museum entry. There is plenty to do and see for adults and children alike at the Museum of Power.
The staff and volunteers are delighted to have been awarded "Engineering Heritage Listed Status" by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for its triple expansion steam engine. The certificate was presented on September 17th by John Wood (Chairman of the Awards Committee).
In his speech John (pictured left with museum chairman Dick Waylen) said "This award recognises the contribution that the staff and volunteers have made in preserving part of Britain's heritage for future generations to enjoy. It has been a pleasure to see that most of the museum exhibits are in working order and not just gathering dust!"
The Museum includes numerous power-related exhibits that will interest young and the not so young, with many working examples of various power sources, machinery, equipment and tools. View our introduction video here.
Our museum Staff are supported by a dedicated group of volunteers who carry out the varied tasks that maintain, preserve and facilitate the daily operation of the museum and its tearoom. Read more about becoming a Volunteer.
The Steam Pump Tearoom is a tastefully themed Tearoom situated in the former 1930's machine shop and is a lovely place to relax with friends or family and enjoy a break. Open Saturday and Sundays with a simplified menu for winter.
