Surprised faces stare at you when the tour guide tells you that the electricity that comes from the socket at home is mainly obtained by steam. People have no idea what steam can do and the forces it can develop to operate large and heavy machines. We are happy to demonstrate it in our Steam Machine Museum!

Who ever enters the Vier Noorder Koggen steam pumping station can still hear the steam engines puffing, feel the heat from the boiler, smell the oil and be sucked into a world of shiny copper, chrome, iron and fast-moving pistons. It is the romance of steam and steam engines.

The steam pumping station was built in 1869 and is named after the craft area and water board that was pumped by this pumping station and before that by 24 windmills. Around that year, the industrialization of the Netherlands also got under way. After almost 200 years, prosperity in our country started to grow again. The use of windmills as a power source declined rapidly.

You’ll will find a unique collection of steammachines, engines and steammodels. The steam museum shows a unique collection if industrial and naval steam engines, steammachines and steam engine models, made in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Great Britain.
