Transformation Hall is an interactive exhibition about the relationship between human and energy. In its centre, in a Faraday cage, two of the largest Tesla coils in the Baltic countries are installed, and on the side of the hall, the foundations of the historical chimney of the first public power plant of Vilnius have been opened, the exact location of which was not known until now.
We invite you to purchase visitor tickets and tickets for guided tours and the Tesla show in advance here.
During the Tesla Show, you will get to know the achievements of the famous Serbian inventor, engineer Nikola Tesla and the most interesting facts of his biography – although he had 300 patents, this did not save the physicist from poverty. What changes in Tesla’s life led to his inventing one or another invention? The museum guide-educator will demonstrate one small and two large Teslas, play with lightning and offer the exhibit-instrument for visitors to try.
The Tesla Show takes place daily at:
Register for free visits or guided tours on weekends:
Energy Production + Tesla Show. In the thematic guided tour, you will learn about energy production – solar, wind, water and nuclear energy – how a generator works and about such energy production methods as triboelectricity and piezoelectricity.
Energy Accumulation and Transmission + Tesla Show. Here you will learn about the types of energy – kinetic, potential energy – how energy is stored when there is an excess of it, how it was transmitted in the past and now. You will get to know more about the unique exhibits of Transformation Hall – the three Tesla coils.
Energy Consumption + Tesla Show. We use the generated energy for transport, lighting, information systems or artificial intelligence. But what and what kind of energy does humanity consume the most?
