Want to visit a movie set while also learning about the history of power generation in B.C.? Consider a trip to the Powerhouse at Stave Falls in Mission this spring. The Powerhouse is a historic power generating facility and has been the site of many television shows and movies over the years, including X2: X-Men United and The X-Files. Even if you’re not a movie buff, visitors can check out the amazing Tesla coil electricity demonstration alongside other interactive and historic displays. The Powerhouse at Stave Falls 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.
