How It Works: Rigging Historic Machinery


One of the most common questions at the Museum is "How did you get all these big machines in here?"  This special illustrated presentation will take the audience behind the scenes, showing not just how our large machines were moved, but the entire process, from designing spaces, digging foundations, creatively rigging machinery, and now restoring select pieces to operation in situ.

Admission for this special "How It Works" tours is $5 in addition to regular museum admission.
