– Story Telling at the Full Moon in Cambridge

From: DirectRooms
Published: Wed Mar 02 2011

The Cambridge Museum of Technology, which is based in the old 1894 sewage pumping station in Cambridge, and was closed down in 1968, has been preserved explicitly for the use and promotion of all things Cambridge.

The sewage pump is a heritage site of what once was the station where untreated sewage flowed into the River Cam through a massive network of overused and unkempt sewers. After a new method was chosen to resolve the problem, the building was closed and a new farm was built at Milton.

The Cambridge Museum of Technology remains intact, displaying its progress from the development of power and steam through internal combustion and electricity. The steam engines performed for 74 years, running off the energy of the city’s burnt garbage.

The Museum can also be found hosting many regular events. One of the upcoming events, Storytelling at the Full Moon, will take place on 17th April 2011. Storyteller, Anne French, will be sharing many tales of technology and mythology.

Tickets for this event can be purchased ahead of time. They cost £7 for adults and £5 for children. It is important to note that all children must be registered and paid for in full with the museum prior to the event. Children must also be accompanied by an adult.

For out of town guests staying at one of the many Cambridge hotels.
