Every year thousands of visitors arrive at the Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre to learn more about nuclear energy and electricity generation.
The Bruce Power Vistors’ Centre invites guests to learn about power generation in Ontario and discover interesting facts about Bruce Power – North America’s largest nuclear power generating site.
Looking out over the world’s largest nuclear power facility, the Visitors’ Centre is located north of Tiverton, adjacent to Ontario’s first commercial wind farm, Huron Wind
The Exhibit Hall
The Exhibit Hall features a variety of interactive exhibits and displays. Visitors can take a simulated tour inside a reactor or try their skills as a nuclear operator on replica control room panels. Another exhibit lets guests take control of a console to select different generation sources – wind, solar, biomass, coal, natural gas, and nuclear – to power an imaginary city.
