Water Museum - Barbadinhos Steam Pumping Station

The Water Museum gathers a number of monuments and buildings, built between the XVIII and XIX Centuries, which are representative of an important chapter in history of the water supply to the city of Lisbon.

Built by the final reservoir of the Alviela Aqueduct, this station was in service between 1880 and 1928 and was responsible for the expansion of domestic distribution of water in Lisbon.

The building preserves the old steam machines, references of the industrial heritage, and hosts the permanent exhibition of the Water Museum that invites the visitor to get to know the water in the areas of history, science, technology and sustainability.

Classified, since 2010, as a Public Interest Set.
