Whether you’re looking to fill an hour or an entire afternoon, The World of Energy has plenty to keep you entertained. Many guests enjoy starting with the educational exhibits located inside our visitors center. From there, you can wander through the butterfly garden or take a walk along our nature trail. You can even end with lunch in the picnic shelter, located along the beautiful shores of Lake Keowee.
More than three-million people have visited the World of Energy, and we’d love for you to be our next guest! We can easily accommodate small families or large groups; and, once here, there are plenty of fun and exciting things to see and learn. We are open six days a week and close for just a few holidays each year. If you will be bringing a group of ten or more, we ask you to schedule your visit.
