The following information was provided by the Plumbing Museum:
The Plumbing Museum is temporarily closing its doors after 15 years of being a part of the Watertown community. Its steward, J.C. Cannistraro, LLC. is moving from its headquarters and will look for a separate space to relocate the museum’s collection.
The Plumbing Museum has drawn thousands of curious visitors over the years and acted as a gathering space for local arts and industry events such as the Watertown Film Festival, Music of the Pipes, and art shows featuring the work of in-house artists-in-residence.
A small curation of the artifacts will be displayed at The FID — Cannistraro’s center for Fabrication, Industry, and Design in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood. Additionally, the Artist in Residency program will be continued in this location.
Fans of the Museum can research the collection and stay in touch for future updates via www.theplumbingmuseum.org.
