Great place for children and adults to learn about power generation and electricity! Nice 3D model of the surrounding area! You can also walk down to the lake, nice dock there, ask attendant how to get there. No cost! Have fun! I recommend this one!

If you are new to the area or just entertaining friends for the day , you need to start here. Not only is it educational and entertaining but it will tell you about all the surrounding areas to visit. Most are free!

It is very well done; maybe a little bit dated but reactor tech has not really changed much in 30 years. It explains how the systems work and how they work with the lakes to minimize the impact on the environment. Lots of hands on...More
