Corliss Steam Engine Demonstration
How It Works
To comply with CDC health and safety recommendations, some museum and village experiences will be temporarily unavailable because of their interactive nature. For more information about the reopening schedule, ticket and reservation information, and safety guidelines visit our Welcome Back visitor guide.
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!
