A highway behind the wall socket
Can you imagine your life, without light, without heat, without music? Without electricity we cannot comprehend our lives. What is it, how does it work or how does it get to our homes? We invite you to discover all this and much more through experimenting.

A highway behind the wall socket is an interactive exhibition aimed at explaining how electricity is produced, transported, becomes visible and how electricity systems are operated; in short, what happens from the moment electricity is generated until it reaches our homes.

In this exhibition we invite you to take part, discover and experiment with electricity and learn about the electricity supply process. You will also learn how to use energy efficiently.
