If you’re into ovens, coal, gears, and how steampunk providing energy once was and could be again, this is certainly worth a visit. There’s a space downstairs intended to teach kids (and playful adults) how energy works for free. There are other spaces inside the huge brick building which host temporary exhibitions featuring architecture, fine arts, and contemporary art shows, the most successful of which was the Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) show a while back. These exhibitions are not free but they are usually not that expensive, depending. The very new, very modern MAAT museum has finally opened to the west of this old space, which makes a beautiful contrast of old and new on the waterfront. Combined tickets are available at either location.
