Unnecessarily closed for a SELF guided tour. Lame Covid disruption. Sad we weren't able to learn about some history of our country.

This facility is only open from Memorial Day until Labor Day and is free. We spent about an hour here after visiting Craters of the Moon. There’s a self guided tour but I recommend the guided one. It is packed with interesting information and the guide was great at answering the many questions we all had. Even if you aren’t scientifically inclined you will enjoy hearing about how the scientists worked finding peaceful uses for atomic energy. I found the INL website to be lacking in its information about the museum.

Tour of 1st power producing reactor. They have guided tours and it was great. Tour was very personal, down to earth and put into context of the time the reactor in operation. This was a great addition to our trip.

While it probably helps to have an interest in science, most folks can probably appreciate the significance of this facility in the history of nuclear energy (good or bad). The self-guiding tour is well done and takes about an hour, or the local guides will take you around in person if you wish. While the site is very remote - for a reason - it is certainly worth a stop if you are in the area. Note that it is only open in the Summer season.
