Event description
Join us to explore the history of Louisville Water at Louisville Water Tower Park and Crescent Hill Gatehouse & Reservoir

About this event

Want to see pieces of water mains more than 150 years old? Study a cross-section of a fire hydrant? Or explore a 100-foot-tall restored steam pump?

This timed entry ticket includes the following activities:

  • WaterWorks Museum (30 minutes - 45 minutes) — Located in Pumping Station No. 1, the museum highlights Louisville Water’s considerable archive of historic photographs (some dating back to 1860), films and memorabilia. The museum appeals to visitors of all ages, including children, with tower-building activities, a station to dress up like water company employees, scavenger hunts and much more. Visitors will also discover Louisville Water’s groundbreaking research in water science and engineering contributing to safe drinking water methods used throughout the world.
  • Guided Tour (45 minutes - 1 hour) — Learn about the iconic Water Tower and participate in a tour of the grounds on the banks of the Ohio River. Also included in the guided tour is time inside Pumping Station No. 3, to see a 100-foot-tall restored steam pump and see a film on its history.

This month's open day has a two-for-one special! After your tour at Louisville Water Tower Park...follow the water treatment process to the Crescent Hill Gatehouse & Reservoir. Go inside the 142 year old Gatehouse, which still houses the valves that control the flow of water in and out of the reservoir.

Please Note:

If anyone in your group has any symptoms of illness, please reschedule your visit.

Our team will be disinfecting high-touch surfaces between tours.
