Cambridge Museum of Technology
Located in the former sewage pumping station of the city this museum tells the history of technology in the city. The first part of the museum - in the old pumping station itself - looks at how the station worked, including working models of the pumps. Behind the pumping station are a number of out buildings which tell more of the history of technology in the city, focussing on the Pye Electronics and Cambridge Instruments companies who helped shape the modern world from their bases in the city.
From the centre of town take a number 3 bus out to the retail parks on the Newmarket road, just beyond the city Ring Road. From the bus stop its about a five to ten minute walk past the large Tesco superstore and down to the riverside. The tall chimney of the pumping station is an easy navigation tool to follow.
