What You'll Get


Humans have an affinity for using cherry bombs to blow things up, such as birthday cakes and musical instruments, but risk life and limb in doing so. Safely explore explosions with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two adult general-admission tickets to The Atomic Testing Museum, located just off the Vegas Strip (up to a $24 value).

Witness the scientific and social history surrounding atomic weaponry and learn about some of the world's most explody explosions. The Atomic Testing Museum is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution and a purveyor of knowledge for the nuclear age. Learn about a world of desert bomb testings and the debate over the sociopolitical impact of atomic devices through informative exhibits, historical source material, and glass-case displays that would never endure an atomic bomb blast and the sweeping curtain of nuclear fallout. Most famous is the museum's atomic-blasting simulation room, which lets you experience the physical tumult of an explosion without harm.

Though the Greek theory of atomos promoted the notion of a particle of matter so tiny it couldn't be divided any further, the ancient Greeks were not yet aware of quarks, quasars, or museum tours. Museums are historical lodges whose pillars, floors, and gift shops provide a window that looks out onto the past. Understanding the first atomic bombs will put you ahead of the rest when the debate begins over futuristic iGrenades.

About National Atomic Testing Museum


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.
