The Electropolis Museum is first and foremost the story of a century-old machine. The story of a monster of cast iron, steel and copper which supplied electricity to a Mulhouse filtering plant until the middle of the 20th century. A true witness to the industrial heritage of Mulhouse, the Sulzer-BBC machine built in 1901 was saved from destruction in the 1980s by a group of enthusiasts who joined forces to create the Electropolis Museum. The adventure of electricity - Experience the extraordinary human, technical and industrial adventure of electricity in a trendy museum accessible to all.
The museum tells the story of a fascinating adventure, that of electricity. It began in Antiquity, and has continued through the centuries with numerous experiments, discoveries, theories and inventions... until today when everything is electric! Take part in experiments as they were practised in the 18th century and observe strange phenomena that will make your hair stand on end! Let yourself be seduced by the new multimedia show of "the great machine", a jewel of Mulhouse's industrial history. In the new space "An electric future", enter a new era to discover the links between electricity, climate and the new lifestyles of the 21st century. Especially for children: games, experiments, videos to understand how a battery, a light bulb or a motor works, to find out what happens when the current flows...

The Electricity Fairy in Santa's Land
From 2 to 24 December 2023

Santa's sleigh no longer flies. The problem seems to lie with the "Noëlometer", an essential part of the sleigh's operation. To fix it, the fairy recruits assistants to travel through time and collect all the objects needed to repair it. This is a two-part event, with a search for objects and the making of the Noëlomètre.
