There are 9 days left of matched funding on our crowdfunder! So here is the first of five reasons why you should support the London Museum of Water & Steam!

www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/p/save-lmws

Reason one is steaming the engines! Maintaining our engines in steam helps us to ensure the safety and security of our Steam heritage. This past weekend we celebrated Back in Steam! This event would not have been possible without the support we have received on our fundraiser thus far. Support future steaming by donating today.

If you are unable to donate but would like to support the museums effort to stay open then please consider sharing this post!

We have an amazing corporate volunteering group in today, Allianz! They set up our Santa grotto and wrapped presents for Santa at the Museum this weekend, and they got our steam engines nice and shiny for Back in Steam this New Years!

Allianz works with the museum regarding all of our pressure vessels- collections like our steam locomotive and engines. Thank you so much to all of these volunteers for donating their time and getting the museum ready for the holiday season 🎄
