The Water Museum

Anatoly Medved/TASS
The Water Museum began when the city water services company, Vodokanal, restored an ancient water tower and filled it with everything to do with water, from a scale model of a sanitary sewer and a scale model of a hydropower plant to balance beams that were used for carrying buckets of water from village wells. It all makes for a rather curious exhibition. Later, a multimedia exhibit, “Underground St. Petersburg”, was added, where you can observe the entire route that the water travels from the water intake areas to people’s apartments and back, as well as the “Universe of Water” multimedia exhibit with its 3D movie theatre and interactive displays. Here, you can organise a water cycle, study the inhabitants of the Baltic Sea up close, and run several chemical experiments.
