Happened upon this by accident but it was fun and informative. Lots of neat displays and information about the peaceful atom as well as the history of the Lake Anna Area and its creation to cool the plant.

Want a break from the heat and learn some cool stuff about energy, not just nuclear? Check out the visitor center, it's cool in many ways. Ask any question you want about the facility and nuclear power, you'll get a direct and informative answer.

I wasn't that thrilled when my husband said he wanted to stop in here, I thought it would be boring. However, the woman working there did a great job in describing the exhibits, and it turned out I learned a lot and enjoyed our visit.
