    This museum and library is the first of its kind in the world. Located inside a historic mansion, the Bakken is a fun place to learn about the history of electricity and electromagnetism to its present use and form. It is home to a massive collection of articles, journals and scientific instruments related to this field. Many of the permanent exhibits are interactive; experience a jolt from a century old electric machine or perhaps a visit to the Frankenstein's Laboratory will make your day. Other interesting spaces here are Ben Frankin's parlor and the library's luscious gardens. The Bakken makes for a great day out with family.
