The museum’s collection includes many scientific devices and instruments: measurement and experiment equipment in the electrical domain.
The industrial uses of electricity are also represented in the collection. The museum is primarily devoted to collecting and preserving the huge industrial heritage connected to the production and transmission of electricity, from the progressive creation of the French network at the start of the 20th century.
