This is a nuclear plant. The visitor center has a hands on story of the history of energy[ you walk through a display and view videos of the different forms of energy. Good for kids. They also have a butterfly garden. Nice place to go.

The World of Energy is a great learning facility for children aged 7 to 70. You learn a little about the history of the area, and get a feel how a nuclear plant works. It's well worth the trip.
