  • A terrific Museum, all very interesting, colorful, fun. The tour begins with a multlekcii of electricity, how to obtain it, the hydropower and the environment. Then hold in the Hall where talks about the history and construction of the Uglich HYDROELECTRIC STATION in the following halls of the interactive story about the world's hydroelectric power plants, hydropower, electricity is applied, other ways of obtaining electricity, and much more. Without fail, I recommend All hydropower MUSEUM in the town of Uglich.

  • Very cool, but come on guided tours only stands because there is no public access. Tell interesting, you can touch and take pictures. Entertaining for adults and children. When you visit Uglich and go here, you won't regret it.

  • This is an amazing place. The perfect guide told an interesting story about the creation of hydro, its work. In the Museum you can touch themselves, a lot to look at. Here the truth is very interesting. Museum of HPS is the most vivid impression of Uglich.
