Water Museum

Water Museum

The Water Museum of Bratislava is located in the historic place of the city on the territory of the oldest water pumping station, built in 1886 on the left shore of the Danube river. This station worked until 1976 providing water to the whole city.

The museum was established there in 2007. This is the youngest technical museum in the city. A global reconstruction took place in 2012 which included territory renovation. There is a beautiful park and playground here, which received the title of the Park of the city in 2016.

The exposition of the museum allows you to learn more about the history of water supply of the city starting from the XII century and until nowadays. The interesting part of the museum is a part of Versaille waterpipe from the XVII century.

A part of the museum’s exposition is located on the Sigot island. There you can see the first well constructed in 1884 and the first electric water pump station, constructed in 1910-1912.
