Exterior view of the nuclear power plant Gösgen, Switzerland
The Gösgen nuclear power plant went into service in 1981 and is scheduled to be decommissioned in the next five years. After the decommissioning the plant will be dismantled over a period of twenty years. A visitor centre on site explains to visitors (school classes, residents, tourists) how a nuclear power plant works, how the atomic phase-out is planned to proceed and allows a glimpse into the future of energy management without nuclear power. Presenting interviews with plant employees, functional models of nuclear fission, models of fuel rods, a collection of minerals, and historical films, the exhibition show the visitors how a nuclear power plant works. At the end of the tour, the visitors have the opportunity to playfully test their knowledge about their own energy needs and to let cars and trains race against each other in a digital future landscape by pedaling on a bicycle ergometer.
