Stave Falls Visitor Centre


What you'll see once you're here

The Powerhouse at Stave Falls delivers an engaging and exciting experience for all visitors. With an amazing Tesla coil electricity demonstration and many interactive and historic displays, guest can take a walk back through time to see how power has helped build our province.

This 100-year-old power generating facility is also a National Historic Site of Canada where guests can comb through archival photos, artifacts and explore the original mechanical and electrical components installed over a century ago.

Because of its unique historic features, many television shows and movies have been filmed on-site. You'll be walking through a real life movie set.
