An interesting place to spend a couple of hours, and cheap entry (3 euros) Particularly good if you are with children there are two areas with interactive displays to teach basic scientific concepts, although we were two oldies we had fun with them!

One the third floor one will find... More

I am not a technical person, i actually never have seen the real generators, burning chambers, economizers before, was not even trying to imagine (as i felt no need to) how thick the metal should be in the generator itself, how long, thick, wide the pipes, how the coal fed burning chamber used to be cleaned or how all the...

Upstairs is a collection of old computers, printing equipment and other items from Vilnius' recent history. On the top floor there are hands on science... More

This museum is great for adults to spend an hour or so wandering around. It has some interesting exhibitions which will appeal to those who have an interest in Energy production. There are also some soviet era cars on display and some exhibits on daily life under soviet times. The main attraction for kids however is the large interactive area... More

The museum shows you different aspects of energy and technology. It is located within an old power plant and parts of that power plant are still there for you to discover. Furthermore it shows you some old cars and other machines related to energy/power. What we liked best: In the upper floors (kind of hidden, only reachable by small stairs)... More
