We were hoping this would be interesting but it would be one of, if not, the most dull and boring museum we have ever been to. The worst part is we went here twice. The first time we turned up (during supposed opening hours) to...More

This place you back to the time of Edison with his patterns and creation. This is a small one story museum located next to The engery company of Beaumont TX.

A small museum but it has well thought out exhibits and great content. There are some great hands-on activities like the Morse code exhibit.

Small but powerful. (that's a pun) No kidding it is a small space. But framed full of information about electricity; specifically about the early use of electricity in Beaumont. Parking in the lot across the street.

I took my 2 grandkids to see this small but vastly informative museum and they had a great time. The computer that translates a typed message into morse code was a big hit with my 9 & 11 yr. olds. My grandson was cutting a...More
