We visited both the Atomic testing museum and the additional Area 51 museum that was added next door. The atomic testing museum was interesting to say the least. It offered great imaged and video's of nuclear explosions and testing that was done by the USA however I find that it lacks greatly in explaining the who what and why's of nuclear powers. I guess this is why it's called the atomic testing museum and not the atomic energy museum. There is lots of potential here and it is worth the visit to the Atomic Testing museum.
When we were at the ticket booth we were offered the Area 51 museum as an add on to our entree fee. The fee was minimal but it really isn't worth it. I love alien stories and I am fascinated by them however this place is probably only interesting for the really really young ones as nothing feels geared for adults. Bits of stories printed and posted on the walls, darkness, green lights, bizare sounds, toys that are supposed to be Alien artifacts, drawings of what aliens could look like etc. This is really for kids, We couldn't take anything seriously in here and zipped out in about 10 minutes. Save your money and skip area 51.
