The Steam Revolution

Exhibition

For more than 200 years, steam did almost everything in our society. It pumped water, drove factories, powered ships across oceans and ploughs through fields. Steam turbines still provide 90 per cent of our electricity. The Steam Revolution exhibition shows how steam touched the lives of millions.

Twelve steam engines, ‘hands-on’ displays, old boilers, videos and much more show how steam engines developed, what they did and how they changed the world.
