I love Groupon and I loved this museum. There was so much more than I anticipated, including pieces of the twin towers, a piece of the Berlin wall, educational info & photos of other testing sites, and even a copy of a letter that Albert Einstein wrote to President Roosevelt. This was really a great way to spend an afternoon!
We took a rout there this past Friday. It was a very informative experience. The person providing the tour was extremely knowledgeable. Awesome experience!
This museum was great. If you can't get a tour of the real test site this is a close, and much easier, second option. Very informative with lots of artifacts. Some volunteers were there that had worked at the test site and gave visitors background on the displays and personal stories. Very interesting and worth the visit if you're interested in nuclear history.
Pretty cool experience. While the stories told depict how people felt in the 20th century, there is not a modern regard for how the work done effects wildlife, indigenous peoples, or the local populations. What little there is is shown as an afterthought and explained as a necessary exploitation for the greater good. Not the tragedy that it is.
Great museum with very interesting exhibits. Covers a defining era/topic from our recent history. Most people take for granted now days that nuclear weapons are part our of world, but there was a time when this wasn't yet true. Visiting this museum can give you insight into how and why these weapons were developed.
