The exhibition of the museum tells the story of Latvia’s energy history – from the first electric light bulb to the launch of Ķegums HPP and the growth of Latvenergo Group into one of the largest energy supply companies in the Baltic states. The open-air exposition of the museum displays unique industrial heritage – evidence of the history of technology – turbines of Ķegums and Pļaviņas HPPs, an AEG transformer used at the Bolderāja substation, a Riga power grid transformer substation built in 1905, various free-air switchgear and other equipment.

The interactive exhibits of the collection invite visitors to act creatively with the purpose of exploring the generation of environmentally friendly energy and the related laws of physics. The exhibit Electricity in the City is designed as a city with electricity provided by four plants – a hydropower plant, a wind power plant, a combined heat and power plant and a solar power plant or solar panels, which visitors can activate digitally or manually. Meanwhile, the interactive model of Ķegums HPP enables one to explore the power plant and simulate the start-up of the plant to produce electricity. Visitors can see video stories about the recovery of fish resources and projects implemented to improve fish habitats and migration, as well as virtually participate in these activities by playing games.

An audio guide is available for visitors as a way to discover the history of the energy industry in Latvia and learn about the development of Latvenergo Group, listen to unusual stories, and learn more about the unique exhibits of the museum. For people with restricted mobility, the audio guide makes it possible to view the "Elektrība dara visu!" (‘Electricity Does Everything!’) exhibition of used 20th - century electric appliances located on the second floor of the museum.
