Nestled in a green oasis and steeped in the Saint-Maurice River, La Cité de l’énergie is an avant-garde immersive museum complex. It’s a must-see stop for exploring an industrial and hydroelectric heritage that is gigantic, in all senses of the term! But also for developing a hands-on understanding of the major energy issues of the present and future.
What’s in store for humanity, in a world characterized by the enormous challenges of population growth and climate change? Within the next 20 years, planetary energy demands will have doubled. Explore such crucial questions and issues in the exhibition Planète Energie, through a multisensory voyage that'll seemingly transport you to the heart of the sun, and which includes over 20 interactive stations.
The weather’s nice? Via panoramic elevator, climb to the top of Hydro-Québec’s lookout tower, the second highest in Québec! You'll feel quite small while taking in the 360˚ view of urban, historical, and natural heritage.
At nightfall in the summer, La Cité de l’énergie presents an ambitious poetic and acrobatic tale, staged in a revolving exterior amphitheatre. Starring the magically illuminated Île Melville forest, and the Saint-Maurice!
