After a challenging spring, the time has
come to take a break and re-energize. Feel like going on a short
getaway or setting out on an adventure? Why not visit Hydro-Québec
sites open to the public?
These facilities represent chapters in the
story of Quebec’s economic evolution. Each has an interpretation
centre that looks back at defining moments in Hydro-Québec’s history
and offers free guided tours. Guides explain how
electricity is produced and how it travels to homes. They also talk
about the different stages involved in the construction of
generating stations, the architectural choices that were made and
the facility’s connection with the environment. The tours are filled
with memorable moments. A must for the whole family!
At the Électrium in the Montérégie region,
visitors can explore the multiple facets of electricity and its
presence at the very heart of life and nature. A guided tour of the
interpretation centre is also an opportunity to learn more about
voltage, electrical circuits, electric and magnetic fields and the
production of hydroelectricity. In the company of guides, your kids
will enjoy a fun, enriching and interactive experience. They’re sure
to love the electric eels and the Van de Graaff generator, which
produces 400,000 volts of static electricity and makes your hair
stand on end!
After careful preparations, Hydro-Québec
teams are ready to welcome you in an environment that is safe and
healthy for everyone. Social distancing and hygiene measures are in
place, and only small groups of visitors who have made reservations
beforehand will be admitted.
