An EDF Group Project

The EDF Electropolis Museum was created and opened to the public in 1992 in order to save from destruction a Sulzer-BBC compressor , a jewel from the Mulhouse technical and industrial heritage. It opened thanks to the EDF sponsorship and with the support of public authorities. This "Great Sulzer-BBC Machine" was manufactured in 1901 and was used to provide power to the DMC establishments in Mulhouse up to the first half of the 20th century.

Europe’s unique exhibition of electricity ventures

The museum relates the extraordinary human, technological and industrial adventure of electricity, in an original museography including many animations. This collection is unique in Europe and presents the first scientific ventures of electricity in the 17th century, from the industrial revolution to the end of the 19th century, and to the major upheavals of the 20th century.
