“The World's First Nuclear Power Plant”
Have you ever seen a nuclear reactor? Ever wonder how electricity is generated from nuclear energy? Satisfy your curiosity by visiting the Experimental Breeder Reactor No. 1 (EBR-I) Atomic Museum, located on U.S. Highway 20/26 between Idaho Falls and Arco . The facility, a National Historic Landmark where usable electricity was first generated from nuclear energy in 1951, is open to the public. It’s the only place in America you can see four nuclear reactors — including two aircraft nuclear propulsion prototypes, a reactor control room, remote handling devices for radioactive materials, radiation detection equipment, and much more.
Great stop! This museum is FREE and friendly, leashed dogs are allowed inside. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone driving through the area.
