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.
The Transformation Hall was created to inspire interest in science and technology and present exact sciences in an understandable and engaging way. Each exhibit consists of two parts: obverse and reverse. On the obverse, you will find an interactive challenge. After completing it, you will generate Quantums of energy, which you can exchange for souvenirs and a Transformation Hall Engineer certificate.
As the new permanent exhibition is open, we invite you to register to visit it. By registering for a guided tour, you reserve time and participation in the selected activity.
Guided tours available:
Daily at 10.15 AM, 1.30 and 4.45 PM:
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?
Daily at 11.45 AM and 3.00 PM:
Full Guided Tour in Transformation Hall + Tesla Show. In a general tour of the Transformation Hall, you will learn how the interactive exhibits work, how to complete challenges and generate Quantums of energy, what are the most important themes and relevance of the Transformation Hall, and what are the essential principles of energy production, accumulation, transmission and consumption.
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.
Please arrive 10 minutes early for the guided tour. At the moment, they are held only in Lithuanian. Information in the hall is provided in Lithuanian and English. Lithuanian, English, Russian and Ukrainian speaking guides and staff work in the hall.
The Energy and Technology Museum is located in the first power plant of the city of Vilnius, next to the King Mindaugas bridge. ETM is a family-friendly venue where you will discover unique industrial heritage, interactive science exhibits and cultural events all under one roof.
The project is financed from the European Union Regional Development Fund and the budget of Vilnius City Municipality.
