Visitors’ Centre

Over 15,000 people visit us annually to learn more about safe, reliable and carbon-free nuclear energy and cancer-fighting medical isotopes.

The Visitors’ Centre, which offers interactive displays and informative exhibits for all ages in a picturesque setting over-looking Lake Huron, is open seven days a week in July and August, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., though closed on statutory holidays. 

Please note, the Visitors’ Centre is closed on Saturday, July 20, for our annual FunFest. We hope to see you there! The Centre will re-open on Sunday, July 21. 

The Centre will also be closed on Wednesday, July 24, for a private event, re-opening on July 25.

Pre-registration for the 2024 Summer Site Bus Tour Program is now open! This year, we will be offering one bus tour a day, Monday to Friday, in June, before expanding our program in July and August to seven days a week, with three tours a day during these summer months (excluding statutory holidays and Labour Day weekend).

Pre-registration is highly recommended due to the popularity of the Bus Tour Program.

The Exhibit Hall

The Exhibit Hall features a variety of interactive exhibits and displays. Visitors can try their skills as a nuclear fuel 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.

The Visitors’ Centre is an ideal field trip destination for elementary, secondary and post-secondary school groups and educators. Presentations are tailored around Ontario’s school curriculum. Bruce Power outlines its operations and provides an introduction to the CANDU nuclear system. A presentation that summarizes the science behind electricity and different forms of energy production in Ontario can also be arranged.
