I had read about it on this site. I think it is better for people 40+ who have memories of it than younger people. All ancient history to them. I found it interesting. Especially one mini movie that had GI's sitting in a fox hole while they exploded the bomb. They didn't say what they died of? The other side... More

We saw a Groupon for this place and though it would be something different to do in Vegas. Its about the Atomic bomb - how it was created, who was involved, the devastation it caused in WWII, and the future of its uses. There were a lot of artifacts and documents and a video. It was interesting to see some... More

It is a great museum, they still had the Area 51 exhibit and it was very interesting! It is nice to be able to take your time in this museum and enjoy.

My son wanted to go to this attraction and it was a stop for the BigBus so we got off. I was surprised at how interesting it was. Both my son and I enjoyed it very much. Not for everyone, and small children may not appreciate it, but if you are 40+ and remember the era then you can very... More

We visited this museum based on reviews we read on Trip Advisor. We didn't expect too much, but thought it might be interesting and would be worth a visit. It exceeded our expectations! My husband and I both found the museum very interesting. We expected to spend less than an hour here, but ended up staying close to two hours.... More

We purchased a Groupon because my husband wanted to go here. Some of the museum was very interesting, other parts a bit boring. Again, this is not really my type of exhibit and museum. It was also really hot in there, I was pretty dehydrated by the time we left. Tip: If you plan on visiting make sure you rent... More

Really worth a visit - spent a couple of hours here and could have stayed longer. Go to the Area 51 exhibition first as it's more fun than fact... Atomic testing boiled my brain a bit too after a few days in Vegas... Makes a nice change from the usual Vegas sinning. 😀

My wife, 10 year old and I really enjoyed our visit... Seeing Area 51 exhibit was a nice bonus. Make sure to catch the short interactive movie in the small theater.

The National Atomic Testing Museum is a great place to visit off the strip (wife and daughter went shopping), quality dad time. Hope you are lucky enough to meet the tour guide, who has worked in the industry for over 50 year’s, he knew and has experienced everything, a joy to listen to wandering around the fantastic exhibits.

Museum was about what you would expect for something like this. Not as much technical stuff as I would personally have liked, but that would also probably bore most people. The Area 51 section is good for kid-level entertainment, most adults will just think it's obscure/silly. Overall it was worth the stop and the few bucks to get in. Wouldn't... More
