    Trinity Site is between Socorro and Carrizozo NM - about a 3 hour drive. You would take I 25 south from Albuquerque and go through Socorro to San Antonio. The good news is, in San Antonio NM, you can ...  more »

    Although the Trinity Site is only open twice a year for a day, it's worth a visit. Docents tell the story of what took place here in 1945 and most of the original buildings are still standing so the p...  more »

    Trinity is a beautiful site with so much history. All the workers here are knowledgeable and kind. The site is a unique piece of history that almost anyone will find something enjoyable about it. The only wish is that it was open more than 2 days a year... oh boo. But it is well worth the day. Not to mention in the surrounding areas, there is so many more things to see and enjoy. It is easy to make a weekend of it all.

    They now have designated parking and a bus shuttle. All at no cost. A great educational trip! It's only open 1st Sat in April & Oct. so plan ahead.

    Worth the visit to this truly unique historical location! Only twice a year! (Oh, something that they don't mention; no cell service! No texting or calling from the site!)

    Amazing sense of the history and times - seeing this made it all seem a lot more real, and the history a lot more 'human.' Gets very, very busy. There are vendors selling reasonable food and trinkets - food has little line and is fast, trinkets had a huge line. I would have bought some, but I didn't want to wait.

    Worth going to at least once. Open to the public two times a year. The first Saturday in April and the last Saturday in October. It's where the first nuclear device was exploded. It's history...Good or bad. It's a place that significantly​ changed human history.
