This is a fascinating place and is ideal if it’s raining or sunny because its nice and quiet.

The museum is a visual introduction to the evolution of the electrical distribution and infrastructure on the Islands of Madeira. The story of how power was and is produced is very interesting and they have lot’s of old GEC instruments dotted about.

There’s one room with 2 desks in it surrounded by instrumentation and controls, makes a very good photo opportunity. 

On the top floor they have a children’s interactive section about electricity, push bikes driving dynamos linking to lights, coils and magnets, it keeps the kids amused for ages.

But not to worry if that area gets to noisy as there is a section of art the other end on the top floor with seats.
