Guided tours of the museum offer a step back in time to the dawn of domestic electricity. Original light fixtures, light switches, woodwork, stained glass and beautiful architecture greet each guest. An exciting hydro-adventure discovery center and gift shop are just right for kids of all ages. Changing exhibits, events and programs are held throughout the year.
