In Bélem, the city’s area with the highest concentration of historical monuments, you can find Museu da Electricidade (Electricity Museum). Opened in 2006, this venue wants to modernize the concept of a museum. The ‘Tejo power station’ is redesigned to show and discuss the present and future state of energy. In its days it was a real pioneer in electricity generation, now it’s still running high on innovation. The main part of the exhibition is the power station itself, including all the equipment that was used. The museum endeavours to give you a clear idea of the way Lisbon’s old thermoelectric plant worked. Get yourself buzzed with a visit to this educational museum!
