Corliss Steam Engine Demonstration
How It Works
Our 1859 Corliss steam engine is the only engine built by the Corliss Steam Engine Company during inventor George Corliss’s lifetime to have survived. Generating 300 horsepower, it served more than 60 years as the central source of power for some dozen independent workshops in Providence. Learn how ingenuity was used to create an optimized power source. Watch it run!
Special Programming: Join us for a daily presentation at 12:00 p.m. during National Engineers Week February 18 - 22, 2019.
