The secret world of the invisible energy
Mar 2020 • Solo
This complex is showing most unusual face of electricity. From discovery of its effects to its future generating solutions, going through live experiences, historical experience models and a complete “from power plants to consumers” animated network model. A real entertaining way to discover the hidden face of the electricity from “electricity specialists” to kids. I am currently use it as a training support for electrical beginners.

Interesting visit but nothing extraordinary to remember. Kids will appreciate the 20 minutes experimental show. More information about the big generator should be added.

Good Self Guided Tour

the audio guide isn't the best but don't think France has masters that art in any of their museums. Lots to see and learn about electricity. Like their yesteryear exhibits.

Weekend trip to the museums in Mulhouse.
Apr 2018
A very interesting & well laid out museum tracing the history of early static electricity right up to present day electricity generation. Excellent collection of various electrical domestic appliances. Demonstrations are given with static electricity - public participation required. The high light is the steam engine and generator set from the old DMC factory. Staff very helpful, but not fluent in English. I don't think many Brits visit the area. Plenty of interactive demos for the kids. Highly recommended. Easy access form Mulhouse by the superb tram network.

Boring and old
Feb 2017
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.

Combined tickets with the train museum
Jun 2017 • Family
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 of the temporary exhibitions was science for children where were a lot to see and test.

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

Not enough interactivity
Oct 2016
As we were curious we had to discover this Museum, we have done it and we are a bit disappointed. Not enough fun, too much similar things. For us it was too much kind of sad and boring. The parts we did appreciate was the ones with electric stuff from the fifties / sixties etc... But it was rather because of their incredible design. The main parts are overall not our cup of tea. We do appreciate Museums but this one not that much.

OK but not the main attraction
Jul 2016 • Family
We came to Mulhouse to see the Car and Train Museums. This one rates number 4 on Trip Advisor and is next door the Train Museum so we thought why not. Ok. It's not terrible and includes a very impressive huge machine from the 1930's used locally for Electricity. But apart from that, most of the infomation given would be covered in any Science museum in larger cities. We stayed for just under an hour. Had a look around. Tried some of the demos and read some of the information on hand. (Not great for English speaking). The staff were very nice and the place itself very well laid out. They have taken a great deal of time to try to make it as interesting as possible. However after Trains and Cars in the same day, it would take a lot to keep you interested.

Interesting place for history enthusiasts
May 2016
The museum is nice to visit with children, it has lots of interesting toys for them, plus some demonstration for Faraday Cage and Electrostatic tension, overall interesting- and JUST IN FRENCH. There are also some nice toys and games close to the exit of the museum to explain electricity for small kids, also very entertaining. The museum is screening an old movie- propaganda style, WW2 propaganda style-serious guys, the movie is old, boring and poorly made, not to say also very long. It is translated in French, English and German. I would avoid wasting the time with the movie, I would go straight for the tour and the toys at the end.
