Museum of Water is a collection of publicly donated water and accompanying stories. It’s an invitation to ponder our precious liquid and how we use it. Come along to make your own donation to the museum, as well as uncover the existing collection. After touring for one year, including a month-long large-scale installation at Somerset House as part of LIFT, Museum of Water now consists of over 500 bottles. There’s water from a holy river in India, 125,000 year old water from the Antarctic, the Flew family snowball, apocalyptic water from 1999, spit, wee, bath-water, breath-water and water from a bedside table said to be infused with dreams. In celebration of our access to fresh water in this country, running alongside the Museum is Water Bar, a free pop-up outdoor bar serving only tap water.
