Totally exceeded my expectations! A surprisingly extensive collection, beautifully displayed and nicely organized. The docent was very helpful and enthusiastic and made the Mega Zapper show a lot of fun to watch. I survived the Cage of Doom!

The most fun is placing your hands on the electric bulb and having your hair stand straight up. There are many fun and exciting things to see and touch

That's the Van de Graaff generator, and it's pretty cool, right? Thank you for sharing your experience, Barb! One of the things we're most proud of at our museum is the great variety of interactive devices. Glad you could enjoy that! Thanks for visiting!

I was pleasantly surprised by what they had to offer. Entry fee is very reasonable, a lot of old electrical equipment. In some places a bit of duplication. A lot of hands-on displays. Enjoyed playing with the theremin. The staff there was great. Very helpful and informative. If you really want your money's worth pay the extra money and come back for the electric show. Overall great show, the Tesla coils are amazing. Fun for all ages.
