Gallery II – Energizing Manitoba: 1900-1960

Six galleries portray the Story of Electricity in Manitoba, from the 1870s to the present and into the future.

With the vast amount of historical information and documentation needed to be distilled for the Manitoba Electrical Museum, the importance of having a qualified interpreter to communicate the main ideas to a diversified audience was immeasurable! Sherry Dangerfield’s work in helping us define our themes, organize our material, and keep us focused contributed to the success the Museum enjoys today.
