The Manitoba Electrical Museum & Education Centre, located at 680 Harrow Street is proud to present “All That Glows” an annual exhibit of holiday lights. The exhibit educates visitors on the ways Christmas lighting and decorations have been revolutionized since the practice first began in the 1880s. You’ll learn, for example, how Christmas trees were lit in homes that weren’t yet wired for electricity. The exhibition has a “local” feel, focusing on the history of electronic innovations in the Manitoba province, which makes it particularly appealing to international travelers. The museum is centrally located with free parking.
