Inaugurated in 2008, the new Visitor Center in Tramonti di Sopra houses the exhibit "Acqua: natura, patrimonio, energia" (Water: Nature, Heritage, Energy).
The exhibit leads visitors to discover the values of water in the various scopes of life on the earth, including its exploitation as a source of energy.

The exhibit has mainly didactic purposes, and is dedicated to schools. However, it is also suitable for adults who can discover together with children the issues and games offered by the Visitor Center.
The route develops in two different areas: in the first hall, besides the relief model presenting the lake system of Val Tramontina, we can find some historical details told with the help of period photos illustrating how water was exploited in the past. A wall mechanism demonstrates the working of an hydroelectric power plant and explains its importance for the production of electric energy using the movement of water masses. It is possible to set in motion the mechanism manually through the simplified panel to have a practical demonstration of the turbine working.
