Since 1979, The Plumbing Museum has attracted plumbers, tradesmen and curious visitors from all walks of life. The museum offers a unique, trade-specific take on American history. Moreover the museum stands as a tribute to the plumbers, engineers and inventors whose hard work and creative spirit have contributed so much to the betterment of our society.

Relocated from Worcester, MA in 2008, the restored Plumbing Museum in Watertown juxtaposes early examples of plumbing equipment with modern fixtures and techniques.

Come explore our exhibits, appreciate history, and experience a new kind of Americana.
