We visited this museum prior to going to the Bradbury Science Museum in order to get an introduction to how Los Alamos became what it is today. The museum is run by the historical society, and admission is free. It is in the former guest house of the Los Alamos Ranch School, and the Fuller Lodge is right next door. You can also pick up a walking tour map for the rest of your trip to Los Alamos. The museum covers the Native American years through the Manhattan Project years. We spent a lot of time reading the displays about the Manhattan Project, which did a great job detailing the culture and people who came to work at Los Alamos when it was a secret city. The information was well presented and interesting. The gift shop was small but also nice, and the lady behind the desk gave us a free poster when we left.
