  • Impressive and affecting place, real old power station be in used, but now clean and cozy. Actually, not a museum, only few laboratory setups to observe different physical phenomena (mostly electrical), like in most of "science" museums. BUT very conceptual and ambient space for artistic photosessions and good amusement. As its located far from tourist attractions, hard to find an get in (don't forget your ID for access control): entrance for tourists is from the back side, where parking is located (have to go through the whole parking, you will see entrance office). There are some cafes on the territory.
  • Very good museum for who is fond of engineering, well maintained equipment showing there like Turbines, Generator and steam Boiler as well as control room. Turbines with different types and power capacities that belong to a wide period of time. There is some other interesting things about electrical engineering or you can do some electrical experiments.
  • Really nice place and informative
  • It's an old power generation plant converted to a museum, has guided and un guided tours with interactive displays. It's informative technologically and historically. Takes about 50 minutes to an hour to go through. Has some experiments that are interesting for kids and adults. Coffe shops and food available close by.
  • Information University, located in the historical energy building. The entrance is free of charge. There are machines that provide used energy in time. There are electrical application units on the right of the entrance. On the second floor, the display of electricity generating machines in time; There is a place where you can make a bird's eye view. On the third floor there are screens that you can learn. If you are travelling to Istanbul, your path is also a must-see structure.
