The Museum of Electricity

IMPORTANT – The Museum is temporarily closed to visitors because of major engineering works taking place in the building, We are aiming to reopen part way through 2024.

In the meantime please feel free to get in touch with us via our Contacts page.

Under normal circumstances our Museum and Archives are open on the 2nd Thursday of each month, 1030 – 1200 or by appointment. We are happy to have “casual visitors” in groups of up to three – provided that you don’t have COVID symptoms – but if you have a larger group please use our Contact Form to get in touch and arrange a session where we can explore the Museum and Archive with you in more detail.
