This place doesn’t sound like everyone’s cup of tea, but the white-coated staff are very enthusiastic and some of the exhibits are unusual enough for a visit. Its collection of 19th-century generators, condensers, motors and (egad) the world’s largest supply of electricity-consumption meters is not very inspiring, but the staff will show you how the alarm system of the barbed-wire fence between Hungary and Austria once worked. There’s also a display on the nesting platforms that the electric company kindly builds for storks throughout the country so they won’t nest on the wires and electrocute themselves.
