Maybe for young kids its fun but for me it was quite boring. We made the museum within 30 minutes. The best part was the gigantic electric dynamo.

We visited this because of the combined tickets offer with the train museum next door. Great idea! The best part was the demonstration show in which the guests could even attend. I tested the Faraday cage given 100 000 V ! For our fortune, one...More

An interesting place but not more, not a must but a can. Don't forget to see the show about electrostatic effects.

I was actually reluctant to go here, given that I did not think I would be interested. However I was very pleasantly surprised to find it fascinating! Well presented, relevant and interactive, I learned heaps and thoroughly enjoyed the couple of hours we spent here.

It was a decent museum. Lots of detailed information on how electricity was discovered and the subsequent inventions. Very cool opening scene describing how towns and cities evolved using electricity. The big generator in the basement was a highlight. The outside exhibits are shabby, tired...More
