Water Works Interpretive Center

Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center;
The Delaware River Basin's Watershed Education Center is located 640 Waterworks Drive, its right next to Water Works Restaurant and Lounge (behind the Art Museum). The Fairmount Water Works stopped pumping water in 1909, but its now home of the Interpretive Center. Great place for a field trip for the young and young at heart.

At the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center you can: Pilot a helicopter up the Delaware River; Make it rain; Re-route historic streams; Peek inside a 48-inch water main; Follow your flush through the city; Send a friend an electronic postcard; and much more. They even have special programs for teachers and students.

Hey, Did you know that you drink the same water that the dinosaurs drank?

If you happen to be jogging or running on Kelly Drive, take a break and stop on in. That's what I did.

Hours of operation are Tuesday- Saturday 10am- 5pm, Sunday 1pm-5pm. Best part its free.
