My wife and I both liked this museum. It has a nice exposition of old cars you won't usually see in other museums (at least in the west of Europe) and the power generators are very interesting as well, especially because there were actually really providing Vilnius with energy from this building. The exposition of old electrical appliances is also... More

This is quite a huge building, lots to see and labelled in a few different languages. There are interactive scientific games on the upper floor but unfortunately a few were out of order but the ones that worked were fun to try.

Only nice thing are cars and motorbikes in first hall. Place is probably more suitable for children, there were some nice games in upper floor where we had some fun, children would love it :-) Not good price/value rate for adults.

This museum is located out of the city center, but still is possible to get there by feet. The most interesting attractions are - the old cars and the technologic exponents. Not a must stop, but still good to take a visit if you have time for that.

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!

The museum is located just across a bridge from Cathedral. It offers a lot of fun for a couple of hours. One can examine a relics of the first central power plant, that originally was build back in the end of 19th century and rebuild after WWII. It was closed only in 1998. 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...

A great place to visit when it's too hot (or too cold!) for you outside. The old power station is really interesting and beautiful to look at. I liked the art installations around it too. 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
