Electropolis Museum

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.
