It was a good museum that put forth the information. Check out groupon because it has a deal for the tickets. Was a little cramp with all of the information presented and the Area 51 exhibit was cool.

Artifacts and information, all presented in a low-budget maze-type construction so that even a light crowd makes everything impossible to see, and you either wait (and cause a log jam), or move on and miss whatever it was. Interesting film. Slight political charge to the whole "we were defending America's freedom when we tested those nukes". I've heard you can... More

What a quirky, informative way to spend a few hours in Vegas! You will learn something and be entertained by the sheer magnificence of the mighty Atom! Love it or hate it, it is history still in the making. Recommended for all ages.

This was a GREAT museum. i wasn't sure about it but it fit into my schedule so i thought why not. It has wonderful signage and displays within. It is a great mix of timelines, historical placards, video and photos. so you move along steadily. The videos are all short snipets and mostly on loops so you can come and... More

This was one of the best museums I've ever been through. It is definitely up there in comparison with the Smithsonian museums (which it is accredited by) in D.C. We spent a few hours here going through all of the displays, videos, and interactive touch screens presented. The Area 51 exhibit was really well done, I hope they make it... More

Surprisingly well presented history of development of Atomic Bomb done with excellent taste. Very educational. Recommended for those interested in World War II history and/ or love technical details. A good way to spend a couple of hours instead of gambling.

Very informative and well laid out museum. Small but full of interesting facts. If you're into aliens, the Area 51 exhibit is for you. I'm not, but it still had neat factual displays.

This place is well worth a visit if you have any interest at all in the Atomic history of the United States. Many exhibits, as well as short films to view along the self-guided tour. Lots and lots of interesting history in this place. There is also an "Area 51" exhibit, which is well...."different". All in all, I enjoyed it,... More

The scholars in the family loved this museum. The history and science are well done. People need to see the potential and power of nuclear science as well as the role that it had it the growth of Nevada. Skip the Area 51 exhibit.

The National Atomic Testing Museum was interesting with many artifacts of the time period; however, be prepared to do a lot of reading to figure out the significance of the display. There were several short video displays--most only lasting a couple of minutes. Many of these had some very interesting information, while others were of television shows of the time... More
