Organizer of Chestnut Hill Reservoir Historic Walking Tour

The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum uses its architecturally magnificent building, mammoth steam pumping engines, and the adjacent historic Chestnut Hill Reservoir to interpret unique stories of one of the country’s earliest metropolitan water systems. Through educational programs and exhibits focused on engineering, architecture, urbanism, public health, and social history, the Museum connects these stories to current issues and future challenges.

 

The Waterworks is located at 2450 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02467, opposite the Chestnut Hill Reservoir in the Cleveland Circle neighborhood. We are accessible by MBTA Green Line trains "C" to Cleveland Circle, and "D" to Reservoir. MBTA Bus lines #56 and #81 are also available. Limited parking available onsite. The Museum is ADA accessible.
