This museum traces atomic energy from it's discovery to the present day. There are experts walking around to answer questions and elaborate. It is a walking museum with several stations to sit and view videos.

Right now, the museum is also offering Area 51 exhibit too. We spent about two and half hours in the museum. There are several videos that allow you to get a feel for the time & magnitude of the experience.

I recently took my son to the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas. The location is easy to find just east of the strip and north of the airport but the price was steep at $22 a head. There were approximately 20 people in the museum at any given time while we were there. The exhibits were interesting to... More

This is a great museum, with lots of information to take it, and presented in a variety of formats. We also enjoyed the atmospheric Area 51 exhitibition whilst we here. We found this difficult to get to without a car. Although there is a bus that’s meant to pass “frequently” we waited 50 minutes for one, and it was a... More

It is a good 30 minute walk from the Strip (in... More

For anyone who lived through the time of the development of the atomic bomb and all the subsequent testing, and later drove by the Nevada testing sites, this museum provided superb background, explanations, and historical perspective. At times too much was repeated in the captions; however, one could skim over those parts easily. The displays were well documented and clear.... More

Everything you want to do know about the atomic bomb. You will learn a lot of stuff. Very well done. The added area 51 stuff is fair. A lot of wall reading.

While visiting this place, you are cognitive of the fact that testing of above ground nuclear weapons happened right outside of this city. We met a fellow who worked at the test center for 30 years of underground nuclear testing, who is an informal docent He was there for hundreds of tests. It will not be long before all of... More

Not really in to this type of thing but this ended up being a very good choice, so take some time, get off the strip and come see this museum. Very interesting, nicely laid out with lots to read, I learned a lot in the 3 hours we spent there. The Area 51; well that was kind of quirky but... More
