The Water Museum comprises the historical Limassol Water Pumping Station, known as the 'Water Machine,' constructed in 1925. Situated next to the Limassol Water Board offices, this Pumping Station is a designated Protected Historic Building on the Cyprus Department of Town Planning and Housing's list. Its primary purpose was to extract substantial amounts of water from the Garyllis Delta aquifer, which was then conveyed through water pipes to the Limassol Water Tower for distribution throughout the town of Lemesos. This pioneering water distribution system not only revolutionized water access in Cyprus but also had a significant impact on the surrounding geographical region.

The restoration of the old Water Pumping Station was complemented by the addition of a modern structure, giving rise to the 'Water Museum and Centre of Water Awareness Development.' The museum exhibits focus entirely on water-related themes, featuring valuable archaeological artifacts, rare objects, and instruments utilized for pumping, monitoring water consumption, testing water quality, and conducting other water-related activities. The comprehensive display is enriched with a wealth of photographic material and a short film, underscoring the profound significance of water within the town's history and its broader implications.
