  • Very nice museum, if you are interested in the history of electrification of Madeira. On the other hand, we missed detailed specs of generators, or some kind of presentation in empty control room. No guide, tiny leaflet only. There is also some kind of an art exhibition on the first floor.
  • Ideal for families. Information suitable for all ages. Nicely organized. Great personnel.
