Electricity Museum Tours

Located on the waterfront of the Tagus River, Lisbon’s Electricity Museum is as beautiful and scenic as it is interesting and educational. A beautiful brick building with long-spanning windows with the 25 de Abril Bridge as its backdrop, the Electricity Museum is an iconic structure of Lisbon.

Many visitors stop in while on a riverfront stroll and are surprised with all this museum has to offer. Inaugurated in 1900, the building was once a coal power plant that supplied electricity to the city of Lisbon. The building and its machinery have been well maintained and today the museum offers visitors a glimpse into the inner workings of an early 20th century coal power plant. There’s tons of original equipment like boilers, alternators, condensers and the control room, complemented with explanatory videos, models and photographs. 

The museum goes beyond just coal-generated electricity — a highlight for both kids and adults are the interactive exhibits, which show how different kinds of electricity are generated in a hands-on way. With its ample space, the museum also houses special events and temporary art exhibits, including photography, paintings and sculptures.

Practical Info

The Electricity Museum is located at Av. Brasília, 1300-598 in Lisbon. It is open Tuesday–Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free.
