The Tejo Power Station is a unique example of Portugal’s historical, industrial and architectural heritage from the first half of the 20th century. The building was listed as a Building of Public Interest, and today it has been fully restored, including the original machinery.
Nowadays the Tejo Power Station tells the story of electricity, evoking the functioning past and working environment of the old factory. It is one of the most frequently visited museums in the country, with over 240 000 visitors in 2015, 50 800 of which were pupils and teachers.
The new Power Station Tour brings together both the technological heritage and future energies. The largest collection on the history of electricity in Portugal, and a selection of exhibits which portray the evolution of electricity up to the age of renewable energies, offer fascinating insight into the subject of electricity.
