    The London Museum of Water and Steam, formerly Kew Bridge Steam Museum, explores the story of London’s water supply as the vital lifeblood of our city. We have the world’s largest collection of Cornish cycle steam engines including the largest in the world still in steam on its original site. Alongside our core collection, our recent Heritage Lottery funded redevelopment has allowed the museum to create new educational displays across all areas, bringing the history of the pumping station and its engines to life. It also helped us create a major new gallery exhibition on London's water supply; past, present and future as well as new educational facilities, cafe, shop and both indoor and outdoor interactive water exhibits.

    The learning team has recently relaunched the museums educational offer in line with the new 2015 Curriculum. With a core focus on History and Science, the Museum is a fantastic space for pupils to discover and learn first-hand, topics such as; the implications of science today, tomorrow and in the future, material uses, states of matter, forces, energy, local history case studies, significant individuals of the past and Britain as the first industrial nation. See our online profile/shop for resources.
