No information on either website that the energy encounter exhibit is permanently closed. Only found out by actually going to the nuclear site location to be told it's permanently closed. Post it your website that the exhibit is closed!

I love going here with kids. It is free and they have a treasure hunt. Most of the things are hands on and there are puzzles in a big room which are tricky. We spent about 2 hours there and the little one I was...More
