  • A+ wedding venue. Unique, spacious without feeling too big, plenty of room for everything you'd want.
  • Set up so you van walk right up to the big machinery and through the place. Your perspective is kinda in the middle so you can look up and down. Neat.
  • Was just walking around the reservoir and noticed this. Went in for free and wow, the old gigantic water pumps are impressive, it's amazing to see how things used to be done and how long this plant was actually used.
  • You must go to this museum. It is a great part of history that could have been demolished to add even more luxury condo's to the neighborhood. Very knowledgeable staff tours and video production.
  • 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.
