I'm recommending this for someone who enjoys knowing about nuclear and atomic bombs. I don't and didn't realize this was the purpose of the Museum. I did, however, enjoy Area 51. I was aware of most of the artifacts shown but still found it interesting.

Set aside a good amount of time to spend reading through the exhibits.

Very cool if you're into atomic history. The area51 exhibit wasn't that great (mainly the cheesy alien stuff), but not my cup of tea anyway. The atomic museum itself was very thorough and professional. Be sure to visit the theatre for the short film!

Worth the time and money to visit. I always wondered what the atomic bomb looked like. Now I know because there is a model of one in this museum.

From Our Editors

The 8,000-square-foot National Atomic Testing Museum, located just off the Strip, unveils the fascinating history of the famed Nevada test site. An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the museum has a growing collection of permanent and special exhibitions. Boots quake as visitors experience a simulated atomic blast, and another exhibit details the Manhattan Project, the U.S.'s massive undertaking to create the first atomic bomb. Firsthand accounts of nuclear tests put museum-goers in the shoes of blast eyewitnesses; there's also a poignant exhibit that includes a 6-foot I-beam from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. The museum volunteer tour guides act as exhibit interpreters, encouraging hands-on exploration and teaching how to divide atoms using nothing more than a good set of kitchen cutlery.
