A guaranteed blast!

Pratt boasts the oldest continuously-operating, privately-owned, steam-powered electrical generating plant in the country. In the East Building you can see the steam turbines along with a collection of other Brooklyn memorabilia and talk with Conrad Milster, Chief Engineer and steam aficionado.You can learn not only about steam-generated electricity but also about all sorts of steam-powered vehicles from mini-trains to giant ocean liners. If you're around on New Year's Eve or Pratt Graduation, you can hear the great whistle blasts from Conrad's collection of steam whistles. Pulling the lever on the whistle from the U.S.S. Normandy and being enveloped in steam is an experience not to be missed. You can try out railroad locomotive whistles, lake and riverboat whistles in addition to the blasts from major ocean liners.
