Situated just off the Birmingham main line canals, the centre gives visitors an insight into some of the most important civil engineering feats in the area.
As well as our displays and exhibitions at the main Heritage Centre site we also look after the New Smethwick Pumping Station and the original site of James Watt and Matthew Boulton's Smethwick Engine.
We organise a lively programme of events throughout the year, and run holiday workshops for children. Pre booked guided walks for groups are available at a small charge.
