Welcome back

The Abbey Pumping Station Museum is pleased to announce that along with other museums within the City we too will be opening our gates to the public once again on Thursday 27th August 2020. For the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers there is a need to manage the number of visitors within the museum. It is therefore essential that you book your timed tickets in advance of your visit to enable us to maintain safety at the pumper. Tickets are free and can be booked from here on the City Museums web site.

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 Center, the two attractions tell the story of over 200 years of science and technology from the early days of steam and industry, to the space exploration of today.

Museum is open from 12.00 noon until 4.30pm Thursday to Sunday until the end of October 2020. It will be closed from 1st November 2020 to beginning of February 2021 except for special event days when opening times may vary. Currently there are no events scheduled for 2020, but do keep an eye on our events page for any special events and their opening times. Before your visit view the Covid-19 museums website notice and FAQ.
