If you like aliens this is where they keep them.

Need evidence that there are aliens? Go to this museum and you will become a believer. Very interesting.

First off: get the tickets from Groupon to save a bit of money. Secondly: this was an excellent and well-maintained-museum that really brought home the shocking reality of atomic testing on mainland America.The film was well-worth waiting for and the sheer number of exhibits mean that I will likely come back next time to go over what I missed -...

The place is very instructive, centered on the Nevada Testing Site. There're props, real parts and videos. But, there's a lot of reading. Also, you're probably not going to feel 'happy' or 'proud' by the end of the visit... I got a race-to-Armageddon feeling, thank you very much. Then, there's also an Area 51 exhibit, which was OK, I guess...... More

There was so much to see. We highly suggest that you see this. Very interesting. Many things that I did not know about. But, yet, it brought back a lot of memories from my childhood. Things that i considered to be normal, but today they would be weird. The Area 54 exhibits were very interesting. Especially the lights above the... More

Anyone interested in history of the atomic bomb Era it is a must see. Very good museum. The area 51 exhibit is a waste of time, to much alien stuff. Before you go check Groupon, I saved $23 getting the tickets from them.

We opted for this as it was something quite different than the usual Las Vegas stuff. It was away from the Strip but not too far away, somewhat between Ceaser's and Hard Rock. For admission, we used a Groupon that saved us some money. It included the Area 51 exhibit. The atomic testing part took us about two hours to... More

We visited here after seeing reviews and thought it looked interesting. It's definitely for older children, and adults as there is a lot of information to read and watch. Currently there is an Area 51 exhibit which is ok but unsure how long this is there for. The main museum has plenty I boards and information about the testing that... More

Great family educational opportunity. Convenient to visit as you take the Flamingo bus and Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd is the central location for Ceasars, the Cromwell, Ballys, Bellagio, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Aria, Cosmopolitan and further down the street you find the Rio, Gold Coast, and Palms. So there is no reason not to take public transportation of Flamingo and... More

Everything you wanted to know about Atomic energy. When we were getting ready to land in Las Vegas we saw these strange circles in the ground over a vast area outside of Vegas. After attending the museum we knew what these circles were. Very Cool, good for families takes about 90 minutes.

Visited whilst he on holiday. Without doubt this place is worth a visit, however smaller children may get a little bored. Great exhibits and things to see, but there is a lot of information to take in and would not be interactive enough for young children
