Took my 8 year old daughter and she enjoyed learning about energy through the exhibits. Her favorites were the bicycle that when pedaled would light up the bulbs and the static electricity machine.

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.
