The Electricity Museum in Portugal
History tends to thrive in museums, but here the history of electricity thrives BECAUSE it’s a museum.
The museum has also been enhanced with other permanent sections on energy-related themes.
An area devoted to the different energy sources, with particular focus on renewable energies:
- An exhibition about the scientists who contributed most to the discovery and development of electricity
- Models of the whole electricity generation, transmission and distribution process
- “Experimenting”, a section in which visitors can try out some electrical phenomena for themselves.
The Electricity Museum also has an education service that organises guided tours and experimental sessions for basic and secondary schools to fit in with their syllabuses.
