They even have movies that document the transport of the reactors to the site. In addition to the displays, Dominion staff members are available to answer questions and assist visitors. This...

The explanations by display were very good. The presentations by the staff (we joined in with a group of high school (or college) students) were clear, with technical competence and the ability to communicate with a broad range of people (elementary children to seniors). We recommend this Center as a point of interest for visitors to Lake Anna.

standard propaganda to indoctrinate all into believing nuclear power is safe and efficient, that skirts the negative aspects but worth a visit

The tour was conducted by a real professional who knew the technical part of how the plant operates. He was a little loose with the facts with it came to overall safety to humans. Nothing was proposed for the canisters of spent fuel siting out in the open. How long will this go on.

We took visitors to the plant, they were impressed by the displays and talk given at the Visitors Center. Displays described how a Nuclear plant functions to what happens to the used up fuel. Sadly, after 9/11 tours into the plant are no longer given.

Unfortunately, you can't see the inside of the nuclear power plant. What you can see is their small but extremely informative and well-thought out information center. It explains basic atomic theory (where was this exhibit while I was taking college physics?!), how nuclear power is generated and how electricity is generated from nuclear power. There is also a detailed explanation... More
