  • A small jump in the history of the birth of electricity to Itu, small town in the State of Sao Paulo. Simplicity and efficiency. The Museum is spread over two floors. The ground floor is free, while the floor is paying, because obviously the ground floor has more reading. No English translation, you need a guide with you if you want to fully appreciate the visit. It does not mine, with its fairly well-preserved façade in azulejos, and remains a place to not not to be missed in this small city dedicated to excess.

  • I went to the Museum of energy with some teachers a few years ago and found it very interesting. The Guide explained with about everything that's out there and how it was organized. Great chronological reconstruction.

  • Small, in a big historical-architectural, the Museum is free only on the ground floor. The visit is very fast and without much interest. For those who have time and walking by the Itu, is a good option.
