Never been here and it was a delight to see back to the past. Many of the pictures brought back memories of my youth. Also it was interesting to understand the history of power generation in Manitoba.

This is an interesting museum for anyone who is interested in learning about electricity and history. It would make a good field trip for school age children.

A small museum dedicated to the history of electricity on Manitoba- so there are things from the past that older Manitobans would remember and younger ones might find interesting. It doesn't take long to visit but worth checking out.

Teachers should take their students here to see what exactly happens when electricity is used. Interesting for all ages!

This museum has been lovingly created by Manitoba and Winnipeg Hydro veterans. The array of older electrical equipment and the wonderful displays are so educational and really illustrate how recent electrification is for much of Manitoba. I would recommend this museum for anyone interested in...More
