The first Steam Pumping Station designed to supply the city of Lisbon with water from the Alviela Aqueduct was built in 1880 in the ancient close of the Convent of the Barbadinhos.

The characteristics of the machinery itself, together with is excellent preservations, makes the Barbadinhos Station an extremely rare and valuable specimen in the field of industrial archaeology.

The museum contains important traces of the history of Lisboa’s water supply, from Roman times to the present day. Worthy of special attention are the host of references to the development of technology and examples of tool and equipment connected with the transport and distribution of water.
