Welcome to the Museum of Power

Museum of Power - Keeping Industrial History Alive & Working

Housed in a former Water Pumping Station, 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. A video can be found here.

On NON event days there is a small CHARGE for entry to the Museum, however it is FREE for you to explore our riverside walks, climb our observation platform or enjoy a cream tea in our Steam Pump Tea Room. Entrance fees for our EVENTS are shown on the web site Events Page. There is plenty to do and see for adults and children alike at the Museum of Power.

Opening times: Wednesday to Sunday - 10am to 4pm (last entry 3pm)
