GUIDED TOURS

Transformation Hall

45-60 min

up to 30 people

Transformation Hall is museum’s latest exhibition about energy transformations and the human relationship with energy. The guided tours take place here:

Energy Production. In the guided tour, you will learn about energy production – solar, wind, water and nuclear energy – how a generator works and about such energy production methods as triboelectricity and piezoelectricity.

Energy Accumulation and Transmission. Here you will learn about the types of energy – kinetic, potential energy – how energy is stored when there is an excess of it, how it was transmitted in the past and now. You will get to know more about the unique exhibits – the three Tesla coils.

Energy Consumption. We use the generated energy for transport, lighting, information systems or artificial intelligence. But what and what kind of energy does humanity consume the most?

Full Guided Tour in Transformation Hall. You will learn how the interactive exhibits work, how to complete challenges and generate Quantums of energy, what are the most important themes of the Transformation Hall, and what are the essential principles of energy production, accumulation, transmission and consumption.

Guided tour participants are also required to purchase a museum visitor’s ticket.
