We live near the North Anna Nuclear Power Station on Lake Anna, Virginia. Dominion Virginia Power has developed a very informative education center to educate people on every aspect of nuclear power. The displays are hands on, the staff is available to answer questions, and it is a great way to spend a rainy morning or afternoon and learn about... More

Husband is a boilermaker and has worked at North Anna Nuclear Plant this summer.

The staff was very excited to talk about the aspects of Nuclear Power and how it works. The films were very informative... More

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.

Dominion Power operates two nuclear reactors on Lake Anna. The information center has many exhibits that depict the operation of a nuclear reactor and the generation of electrical power. 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.
