  • I was totally surprised. The outside does not look like much, but inside is a wealth of historic steam powered machinery. All of it was left just as it was when taken out of service. The staff was very knowledgeable about the history and use of each piece. There were boilers, steam engines, pumps, etc. All are very large. If you like historic machines, you will like this place.
  • McNeil Street Pumping Station houses the Shreveport Water Works Museum. It's worth a visit. Museum is free. They have tours but you can walk through at your own pace. Open in 1887 as Shreveport's first water plant. Contains a machine shop, boiler room, pump room, filter room and some exhibits outside.
  • We ask for a and received a tour. If you love history, this is a great place to go. This place is full of local history. Our kind was extremely knowledgeable of how water is piped into the treatment plant them sent out to the city. It's easy to see how dedicated the volunteers are too this museum. It runs on donations only.
  • Great tour. Knowledgeable guides! Free yet priceless! Please consider donating!
  • Not bad for a small museum. Some interesting things on the grounds of the museum. It is definitely worth a stop if you need something to do while in Shreveport.
