For the past 21 years, Hydro-Québec's electricity interpretation centre offers a dynamic way to learn about electricity.
Would you like to explore the electrical environment we live in? Would you and your family like to learn about science and electricity? Do you want to make interesting and surprising discoveries? Then visit the Électrium! Our guided tours will help you learn all about the presence of electricity in nature and in the human body, find out about lightning and the Northen Lights, and discover the secrets of our electric eel. You can also follow the path of electrons, explore the laws of physics and learn about electromagnetic fields. All this, in the presence of our experienced guides.
Many exciting exhibits await you. An interactive display lets you test your reflexes and beat records as a family. An animated film invites you to help the Sansouci family use energy more wisely. Videos teach you about renewable energies, hydropower generating stations and the history of electricity in Québec. And our younger visitors will enjoy the films created especially for them: Follow the Line and Go ReNEWable.
Entertaining and educational discoveries await you, rain or shine!
