this museum if one of the finest . most people come to Las Vegas for 3 things and education isn't on of those 3 but I say, if you have 2 hours extra, don't miss this. Interactive and thought provoking

Check out the "Miss Atomic Bomb 1957" refrigerator magnets in the gift shop. A bit spendy at $8, but a great gift idea for someone who has everything.

Read the display notes and watch the videos. My favourite was seeing the timeline. This a great learning experience for older kids 12+

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.

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.
