  • A very interesting museum about an old thermal power plant, which was in operation from 1920 until 1971. The truth is that surprise all its machinery and the building itself. RECOMMENDED. (THE SIDE WE FIND A RESTAURANT THAT WILL EAT VERY WELL)

  • In an environment such as the Museum of power, and by the River, a relaxing experience in mode urban but with a retro touch, enjoy a cold beer in the shade in the afternoon's heat, or a warm infusion in the local plan choose it you, them good service.

  • Interesting Museum. Taking advantage of installations in disuse of the thermal power plant of Ponferrada, to explain the process of generating electricity from coal by steam turbines. Video monitors in which former employees of central explain its operation and the way of working of a bygone era are curious. There are guided tours.

  • Unique, modern and well decorated Museum in a former power station of coal. Ideal for family, simple but detailed tourism. The building and restoration that have already done is worthwhile. Make family workshops.

  • Essential visit to this museum. Beautiful, live a little bit of what workers there, this super well-equipped lived everything, with videos of workers there who have every place, if you can book guide or audio guide better, we missed us like that, that someone explain us all to leave even more happy, but really that essential visit, great Museum.
