Electricity Museum


The Electricity Museum was inaugurated in 2006. It is located on the bank of the Tagus river, in Lisbon and occupies the building of the important Central Tejo, built 1914/1919, that supplied the city during most of the 20th century.

What a glorious building and I love the huge art work! It reminds me of the modern art gallery in the old Battersea power station in London. Very cool!

Jacob said...

Another set of superb photographs. It just strikes me as humorous that there is a museum dedicated to electricity...

I suppose it makes sense, I mean, not much is as important to the modern world than electricity...

Maybe they have paintings of fuse boxes?

;-))

You are the well-deserved recipient of this award, JM!

Congratulations on the award. Well deserved.
I love this building! The brick work is great and I love the long narrow windows. I could picture this building sitting somewhere in the midwest of the U.S.

It's freaking unbelievable that people were afraid of electricity back in the days. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a very good example for this anxiety. Nowadays we have a whole museum just dedicated to electricity. That's great progress!

Julie said...

The mural on the old water tank is terrific and the fact that they put an electricity museum in a disused power station.

The final photo has some good line work in it, JM.

Bravo as always!

Geometric figures and lines always fascinate me. The fence and windows are great examples.
