Steam Power 101

This in-depth course, taught by Joe Michaels who designed and helped build the Museum's Steam Power Plant, provides a working understanding of basic steam plant operation, which can be applied to other mill (or stationary) settings, as well as marine and mobile applications. Beginners welcome, no technical expertise required. Steam Power 101 will be held Saturday, August 15, 9 am - 5 pm and Sunday, August 16, 9 am - noon. Register by August 12

Free Family Saturday

August 15 is the final Free Family Saturday of the season. We'll be running the steam power plant, so you can see steam as well as water-power demonstrations. Up to two adults will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by a child (preschool through high school.) Students aged 13-18 will be admitted free of charge as well. Children 12 and under always receive free admission to the Museum. Funding for Free Family Saturdays comes in part from a grant from Stewart’s Holiday Match.
