L'Électrothèque du lac de Guerlédan - Electricity museum was founded in 1992 by a handful of enthusiasts determined to preserve the memory of the construction of the Guerlédan dam and the arrival of electricity in the Breton countryside. 

In 2013, management of the museum was handed over to the Pontivy Community Tourist Office, and the collection was recognised as being of community interest. The collection, comprising over 900 objects, has been built up thanks to donations from individuals and businesses.
For some thirty years, the Électrothèque has been pursuing its objectives of safeguarding, promoting and passing on the memory of the industrial and historical heritage of the Lac de Guerlédan area.
