Discover Wonder Juice
May 1–30, 2013
Come celebrate one of Manitoba's greatest gifts – electricity generated by water power or "wonder juice" as we like to call it! Discover the first uses of this wonder juice and why it has become one of Manitoba's greatest natural resources. Experience:
- A hair-raising moment with the 500 kV Van de Graaff generator. Capture your moment with the generator and share it with your Twitter or Facebook friends.
- Travel through time from an era of no electricity to the engineering feats and marvels of hydro-electric development in Manitoba.
- Visit our giant appliance robot and try to identify the power guzzlers and the power savers.
- Join us for a month-long birthday celebration recognition of Manitoba Day on May 12. Pick up your Manitoba flag and an Electrical Museum collector pin while supplies last.
Also, be sure to pick up a Cool To Collect limited-edition Electrical Museum pin after your tour during our Discover Wonder Juice month!
The Museum is open Monday through Thursday, 1 – 4 p.m. For more information, or additional tour times, call 204-360-7905.
