Explore the life, work, and legacy of James Watt and his reinvention of the steam engine in our new exhibition.

On 25 April 1769, James Watt patented the 'seperate condenser'. This invention revolutionised the steam engine, and became the driving force behind the Industrial Revolution.

In our new exhibition 'James Watt: Power to the World', learn all about who James Watt was, and how he worked hard to create a more effective steam engine.

Discover the impact he had on Britain's industry, architecture, and engineering, which you can still see today.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for James Watt: Power to the World are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
