Welcome to The Public Works Experience

The Baltimore Public Works Museum is now the Public Works Experience!


We are everywhere, keeping you moving day in and day out.  Without us, life in our modern world would be nearly impossible, and yet, you hardly know us.

Focused on Critical Infrastructure...

Every day, Public Works help protect our health and the environment, while improving the quality of life in our communities.

...and YOU!

Imagine no water, or electricity, or trash removal - we could not last long in our modern world without Public Works!

We were thrilled to light up the chimney at the Public Works Experience!  As part of the Light City Festival, the Eastern Avenue Pumping Station was highlighted with the amazing KEYFRAMES display, all the way from Paris, France!  Our colorful chimney further highlighted the pump station, and the importance of connecting public works with the people. 

October 5th Public Opening

Thanks to Everyone Who Helped Make This Event a Huge Success!

For the first time in nearly 10 years, the Public Works Experience opened our doors, and it was a super day!  

As part of Doors Open Baltimore, we were open from 9am to 4pm, and over 650 people came through the Experience.  We got lots of great feedback, and tons of support from the many visitors - we can't wait to open again!

Special thanks go to the many volunteers who helped us get cleaned up, and also helped out during the event:
