Help us tell the story of electricity in Manitoba

The Manitoba Electrical Museum & Education Centre is a non-profit organization supported by volunteers. Since opening in December 2001, we’ve been sharing the story of Manitoba’s electrical development and educating visitors about how electricity is produced and delivered. We offer tours for a wide variety of visitors, including international visitors, educators and community organizations. Our volunteers contribute to many of the museum’s activities and are an important part of creating an enjoyable visitor experience.

If you are interested in sharing your talents, meeting a variety of people, and want play a part in keeping Manitoba’s electrical museum operating for future generations to enjoy, we’d love to hear from you. For more information call 204-360-7905 or send us an email at info@manitobaelectricalmuseum.ca.
