Transformers, vacuum tubes, and more - tech geeks and the nostalgic will especially love this blast from the electrical past.
Ghosts of technology past.
As technological advances become ever more feverish, things that once seemed revolutionary and even miraculous, such as the machinery, transformers, and tools which brought electricity to all of Melilla throughout the 20th century, became obsolete. Many of the items here were found abandoned in one or another facility of Gaselec, Melilla's electric company, until in 1997 it was decided to put them on display for the public. The resulting museum has hundreds of pieces, including real eye-openers such as a diagram from 1900 which lays out the city's first electric grid. Housed in Gaselec's Technical Centre on Calle Comandante García Morato, the museum is divided into one section dedicated to large machinery such as voltage transformers and another which recreates offices of the 20th century.
