An interesting place but not more, not a must but a can. Don't forget to see the show about electrostatic effects.

As we were curious we had to discover this Museum, we have done it and we are a bit disappointed. Not enough fun, too much similar things. For us it was too much kind of sad and boring. The parts we did appreciate was the ones with electric stuff from the fifties / sixties etc... But it was rather because... More

We came to Mulhouse to see the Car and Train Museums. This one rates number 4 on Trip Advisor and is next door the Train Museum so we thought why not. Ok. It's not terrible and includes a very impressive huge machine from the 1930's used locally for Electricity. But apart from that, most of the infomation given would be... More

The museum is nice to visit with children, it has lots of interesting toys for them, plus some demonstration for Faraday Cage and Electrostatic tension, overall interesting- and JUST IN FRENCH. There are also some nice toys and games close to the exit of the museum to explain electricity for small kids, also very entertaining. The museum is screening an... More

We did not have any child with us and we have already visited a few science museums with electricity sections (for instance in Milano, Italy and in Munich, Germany). Maybe due to these reasons, we have been disappointed. Indeed, compared to other museums, Electropolis has few ancient apparatuses; the much-advertised electricity show basically only shows to children that when "minuses"... More

I was actually reluctant to go here, given that I did not think I would be interested. However I was very pleasantly surprised to find it fascinating! Well presented, relevant and interactive, I learned heaps and thoroughly enjoyed the couple of hours we spent here.

It was a decent museum. Lots of detailed information on how electricity was discovered and the subsequent inventions. Very cool opening scene describing how towns and cities evolved using electricity. The big generator in the basement was a highlight. The outside exhibits are shabby, tired and need an uplift. Children's area in the basement looked good if you have kids.... More

The exhibit starts with an extensive model city that takes you through how we use electricity and some of the ways we produce and transport it. Be aware that the voice over for this area comes in both French and English so if you have a preference wait 5 or so minutes for the next language to begin. The rest... More

Very interesting with a tour guide who is obviously passionate about her job. Our guide adapted the tour to her public.
