Who says learning has to be boring? Not us! Our dynamic field trip options at the Water Works Museum are educational and entertaining.
George Warren Fuller came to Louisville Water in 1895 and pioneered filtration standards that are still in practice around the world today.
Learn the history of the 10 statues adorning the top of the Water Tower. Most date back to the 1890's.
Water is an engaging teaching tool for students of all ages. We offer real-world, one-of-a-kind education experiences at our WaterWorks Museum, the historic Louisville Water Tower and on-site in the classroom. Designed to meet school content standards, we use science, social studies, practical living, literacy and math to bring water to life.
Field trips provide interactive learning at Louisville Water Tower Park through tours at the Water Works museum, plus a visit to an active pumping station. Guided tours and on-site lessons cover a wide range of subjects, including the Properties of Water, the environmental impact of erosion and weathering.
