Home EDF Museum on Hydroelectricity
The Musée EDF Hydrélec is the only museum in France dedicated to hydroelectricity. Installed in Oisans, the Musée EDF Hydrélec features a new 900m2 scenographic display that retraces the epic story of the production of hydroelectricity.
It pays homage to the scientists, engineers, technicians and manoeuvres that played a role in building the hydroelectric power stations and dams, some of which have become an integral part of our heritage and genuine works of art. Installed in Oisans, in the heart of an area with a long history of hydroelectricity, the Musée EDF Hydrélec has now been awarded the «Musée de France» label. It features a number of unique collections comprising scientific and technical objects from the 19th and 20th centuries.
The museum is a member of the "Route des Savoir-Faire de l'Oisans" and organizes guided visit every Wednesday at 3pm, by appointment.
This establishment offers the E-Bike Service: charge your electric bike here on request (remember to take your charger).
