Fairmount Water Works: Inside & Out

Thursday, November 16, 2017 -
4:00pm to 5:00pm

Tour the Fairmount Water Works – a National Historic Landmark, Civil Engineering Landmark, and National Mechanical Engineering Landmark – beginning outdoors on the grounds (weather permitting). Your tour guide will then take you inside for an orientation of “Water in Our World”.

Attendees also have the opportunity to sit in our Engine House Theater and see an award-winning 15-minute historical film on the building’s important role in Philadelphia’s history before touring exhibit areas on their own.
