National Atomic Testing Museum

The 8,000-square-foot National Atomic Testing Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, unveils the fascinating history of the Nevada test site with a growing collection of permanent and special exhibitions just off the Strip. Boots quake as visitors experience a simulated atomic blast, and an exhibit on the Manhattan Project covers its rivalry with the competing Staten Island Gambit. Firsthand accounts of nuclear tests put museum-goers in the shoes of blast eyewitnesses, and a 6-foot I-beam from the wreckage of the World Trade Center adds a solemn contemporary note. The museum's brigade of volunteer tour guides acts as exhibit interpreters, encouraging hands-on exploration and teaching how to divide atoms using nothing more than a good set of kitchen cutlery.
