It is important for ordinary Japanese to achieve scientific literacy, which enables to understand information appropriately and make their decision reasonably, on science and technology, including nuclear activities. To achieve nuclear literacy, a reactor for interpretation should be established at a science and technology museum, where students, educators and the public would understand functions of an actual reactor and get interests in nuclear activities, so they would understand what nuclear energy is. <BR>In this facility, scientists and engineers including pioneers of nuclear activities in Japan should be engaged and provide interpretative contents for various guests, for example, practical operation of the reactor.
