One of our children has been wanting to go here for some time, and this year, we finally did. This is not a good museum for younger children because they will probably be pretty bored and not understand much of what they see. Be prepared to spend about 2 hours here and do quite a bit of reading. That said,... More

Hubby saw a sign for the Area 51 museum as part of this and wanted to have a look. It's away from the strip so the first good thing is it's quiet and peaceful!. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Atomic Testing museum is interesting and there is a lot to read and take in. If you want to... More

The Atomic Testing museum is just off the strip, we got a groupon for the entrance which included the Area51 exhibit. Its an interesting tour through the history of the testing site, its workers and a little on the lessons that had been learnt. I think it was worth the visit to get to understand more about Nevada than the... More

The artifacts were interesting. There was nothing outstanding to give it a higher rating. It took about an hour and we enjoyed the movie. We were able to get the Groupon deal so it was with it.

I was recommended this museum from a family member who heard about it. It was very interesting to see and learn this history. Definitely could spend a good chunk of your day in here. Area 51 exhibit attached to this museum is also another interesting factor to this exhibit. It is good for all ages as I took my 10... More

We thought this might have something for everybody because it also offered an exhibit on Area 51. There was something for everybody but we didn't think it was worth the $20 price; $14 for the Museum and an additional $6 for the Area 51 exhibit. The museum did a pretty good job of depicting the development of atomic energy/weapons and... More

This museum is very informative and fun. There are various different short films showing throughout your exploration. The attractions are fun to look at and include a ton of information. You get to see a lot in this museum as well, many, many exhibits to learn from. We found a coupon to get $2 off admission from the lobby of... More

Excellent museum. Former employees of the testing site are there to answer questions. Worth the trip off the strip to visit. There is an additional Area 51 section for extra $. Thought this would be interesting but save ur dollars.

We were looking forward to seeing this museum as both of us grew up in, "The duck and cover," culture. The exhibits were well done and interesting. The video which places the viewer in an explosion was pretty cool and a bit mind blowing. A very scary part of history. The Area 51 exhibit was okay. I would come back... More

The museum is on the east side of Flamingo. Walking from the strip is a bit too far but you can take the bus, taxi, or drive and it doesn't take long. I went with my husband and our 12-year-old son and we took the bus there. It's not a big museum but there's plenty to see. Make sure you... More
