Really worthwhile...and great food for thought. Lots of great information--really paints a picture of how the use of atomic energy has evolved and how much we all don't know about what governments are doing. Very informative. I found it really interesting.
Great museum for all ages! Use Groupon for the tickets. The museum can take about 1.5 hours depending on how fast you are. Really important educational opportunity, as it talks about what it takes to develop defense programs in the USA. Contains actual bomb casings and many other real items from the history of atomic weapons testing in Nevada. Sometimes, volunteer engineers will be there to explain certain things in the museum.
This is the second time I have been here , it's been a few years but I love it. So informative and always interesting. The gift shop also has more items than I remember, which I'm not complaining at all! If you have friends or family who are even at all interested in history you should come here. I'm sure I'll be back again in a few years!
A really amazing learning experience that details the history of nuclear testing in an informative and easy to digest way, also has a wonderful gift shop that isn't very overpriced. That being said, while it does detail the effects of the Hiroshima bombing which I can respect, it glosses over the political kerfuffle caused by the bikini atoll testing, which I feel is a huge blind spot in the education. However their detailed analysis of east west political conflict with nuclear war as a backdrop more than makes up for it. Discounts for Nevada residents and people who have also visited the mob museum.
We took a rout there this past Friday. It was a very informative experience. The person providing the tour was extremely knowledgeable. Awesome experience!
