Springfield H2Oh! Exhibit In-Person
Head to the Springfield History Museum every Thurdsday, Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and visit our latest exhibit: Springfield H2Oh!
Community members are invited to explore our community's water past, present, and future. Springfield is founded on water... it's in our name! Without water, our community would look very different. We all need water to exist, and we need different types of water systems to live in a modernized city. But have you ever stopped and wondered exactly what those systems are, how they work, who maintains them, and what role we all have in protecting our water? In Springfield H2Oh!, discover this and more, including the history behind the spring in Springfield.
The exhbit includes several interactive elements, such as a children's corner complete with a play laboratory, a flash card game to quiz yourself on pollution prevention, takeaways related to water quality, and much more.
This exhibit is offered in partnership with the City of Springfield's Development & Public Works Department, the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission, and the Springfield Utility Board.
