  • Seriously it's not just the vacuum cleaners this place is hidden gem of Vilnius and to me a real treasure trove. It's got a fascinating collection of stuff and my kids loved it. As others have said...  more »
  • This museum was the first power plant in Vilnius. Due to the ongoing renovation work, the interactive exhibitions are closed and only a part of the museum is open for visitors.  more »

  • Some of the exhibits were not working, many of the explanatory signs were only in Lithuanian while others were in both the latter and English. There was no-one on whole floors available to guide visitors and answer any questions. Finally, who made the decision to close it from mid- July this until the end of next year - ridiculous to miss the height of the season?
  • Fantastic museum. Really fun, interactive exhibits which teach you about scientific principles and are full of surprises. They kept us (mid-late 20s) occupied for ages, but would be equally fun for anyone aged approximately 3-103, though I guess the stairs could trouble some. The power plant aspect of the museum was also fascinating - interesting to go into the steam chamber and learn about how Lithuania’s energy system has developed and weathered occupation and war over the years.
