Current exhibitions

RHEINFELDEN - ON THE ELECTRIC GRID! From the trinational border into the world.

-
The exhibition in the Fricktaler Museum is all about the electric current and its effects on our region. The starting point and important focus is the first large hydropower plant in Europe, which went into operation in Rheinfelden in 1898.
In 1904, the Rheinfelden and Beznau power plants succeeded for the first time in linking two island networks to form a network, a pioneering achievement by the Swiss engineers Agostino Nizzola and Charles E. L. Brown!
