Located in Coolspring, Pennsylvania, the Coolspring Power Museum has more than 44 buildings and pavilions on 35 acres that supports its extensive collection of more than 360 historically significant engines and other equipment that was driven by stationary engines, such as compressors, pumps, and generators. Engines range in size from fractional horsepower up to 600 hp (447 kW).
The museum’s collecting efforts are directed at filling technological gaps in the collection by accepting donations from private collectors and occasionally other museums. The museum also maintains a substantial library and archive related to the objects in the collection and to the internal combustion engine in general.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers recognizes the Coolspring Power Museum as a Mechanical Engineering Heritage Collection.
