Abbey Pumping Station is Leicester's Museum of Science and Technology, displaying Leicester's industrial, technological and scientific heritage. Situated adjacent to the National Space Centre, the two attractions tell the story of over 200 years of science and technology from the early days of steam and industry, to space exploration of today.
2014 is a very special year for the Abbey Pumping Station museum as it's 50 years since the beam engines became redundant. Since 1972 a team of volunteers and museum staff have not only been working to build a technology museum which Leicester could be proud of, but have also been working on the restoration of the massive beam engines. All four beam engines are now in working order and subject to funds being available, all the four massive beam engines are to be steamed together at our June event.
