The staff were wonderful. Very knowledgeable staff about the Manhattan Project. Loved the museum. Could have spent a lot more time here but our time wouldn't allow it. Will have to come back! LOTS to see and learn about here!

Interesting artifacts, in fact the building itself is a relic of the historic Secret City project, having been constructed as an elementary school. We are history buffs and love museums and we will visit here again hopefully bringing extended family to see where grand parents helped the war effort. Spacious, well done, pleasant place to linger and read the descriptive placards surrounding the exhibits. What luck we went in here - we almost didn't because the of the title "Children's" museum--but several other sites were closed. Don't miss it.

We went here because it is also the Manhattan Project National Park museum & Info center. The Children’s museum is quite large & has many hands on displays to keep children occupied. The Manhattan Project is a great place to see parts of US History not talked about, hence the name the secret city.

We came for the international festival not knowing what to expect. We were so surprised by how many things are in the museum. We will come back with our grandchildren several times.
