About Fairmount Water Works
Philadelphia, United States
ADD TO LIST
Today the Fairmount Water Works is the site of an educational center run by the Philadelphia Water Department. This center highlights the history of the Water Works; it uses this important historic story to talk about why clean water is important, and what we can do to stop harming the environment. Its a unique mesh of history and science, and very educational.
The Fairmount Water Works is located just behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art at the south end of Fairmount Park. It is adjacent the Water Works Restaurant.

It can make for a fun daytrip. If you are going through Fairmount Park behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art I would suggest checking this area out. It is very beautiful, and the city just restored some historic pathways and buildings. The Water Works are just down the street from Philadelphia's Boathouse Row.
It won't take long to go through the museum, and the history and science are fun.
