Possibly a museum overlooked by some but is well worth the visit. Explains the evolution of atomic science and how it was harnessed for weapons. Also chronicals the testing that went in in Nevada. A huge amount of imformation packed into the museum. A visit takes at least a couple of hours but like other museums you could easily soend... More

I loved it so much. The artifacts and information it provides is so interesting. It is a bit pricey, so look for coupons. The gift shop was disappointing. Also, there is another area next to the museum for Area 51, it was free, but underwhelming.

This museum covered the entire history of the Atomic age in chronologic order with photos and text. It was very easy to follow and go at your own pace. Not a place to take little children or people not interested in history.

We all enjoyed this museum, from parents, to teenager, to pre-teen. There was something for all of us. Good description of all the testing, background, etc. Probably too much reading for the kids, but adults will find it all relevant. Couple of things: the Area 51 side show was a bit hokey, and perhaps aimed at kids rather than adults.... More

I planned a trip to Vegas around the monthly tour of the National Test Site northwest of the city, where the US tested nuclear weapons from 1951 until the early 1990s. This museum is associated with that facility and Smithsonian. It is on Flamingo just east of the strip. It is worthwhile if you are interested in the material (guilty).... More

Visited the National Atomic Testing Museum as part of a professional organization and was surprisingly impressed! The museum tour was given by two gentlemen who both worked as employees of the actual testing site. Their personal stories and insight were priceless. The museum itself is filled with information about nuclear and atomic testing . . . as Nevada was declared... More

I have wanted to see this museum for some time now – but no one wanted to go with me. So I went alone. I spent 1-1/2 hours there and I found it very interesting. I was able to see all of the displays and as many of the videos that I wanted in the main museum—as well as the... More

If nuclear bombs is a topic that interests you, this is a great place to spend 3 hours. Lots of interesting information on nuclear testing, very well done and presented, including videos. Photography allowed. The Area 51 exhibit in the same building is, on the other hand, pretty weird, disorganized and crazy. No photos allowed. Don't spend your money on... More

We visited the museum in Sept 2014 using a groupon voucher during our 2 week stay in Las Vegas. We were especially interested and looking forward to the area 51 exhibition. What a huge disappointment! The displays are really very old fashioned and not interesting at all. It looked like it were done by school children. You're also not allowed... More
