  • This should be a modern Museum: multimedia, interactive and informative. Exposure varied and not at all boring, as often happens in museums. To build a hydroelectric station, to hold the ship through the gateway and even pedal on a stationary bike, forcing burning bulbs in the House. From small drawbacks: visiting just 3 times a day — at 11, 14 and 4:00 pm — and the absence of normal parking nearby

  • Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of tours. Guide Anastasia with such enthusiasm infects told us about the history of HES and GRES that 2:00 have flown by imperceptibly. Learned a lot of new and interesting things about how to produce energy not only from the water. A modern museum with modern stands, exhibits. 2:00 have spent is wasted!
