Welcome back

The Abbey Pumping Station Museum as Leicester’s Industrial Museum is pleased to announce that along with other museums within the City we opened the gates to the public once again from 21st June 2021.  For the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers Covid-19 restrictions in force will need to be adhered to.

Abbey Pumping Station is Leicester’s Industrial Museum, displaying Leicester’s very varied 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 the space exploration of today.

Subject to Covid-19 restrictions the museum is open daily from 11.00am to 4.30pm from 1st February to 31st October, except for special event days when opening times may vary. A number of special events are being prepared and as restrictions allow details can be found on the events page. Click here for event details.
