  • Disclaimer: I an a real scientist with a PhD in Radiation Chemistry. I have rated this site with 5 stars because it is a place I had wanted to visit and am grateful exists, but have not visited yet. Reviewer Renato tells an evil fairy tale. Not one claim of his is true. The proof is he could easily have included references to where he got his crazy ideas. A few facts: The Germans WERE leaders in physics, until their crazy persecutions of Jews got them to remove and try to kill every Jewish chemist and physicist in their otherwise excellent research and engineering institutions. They fled to the U.S. and convinced President Roosevelt to build the bomb because they knew the Nazis were trying to build one and knew we had to make one first. Plutonium was first created in California and produced in quantity in Tennessee.. The Japanese and Nazis never had one atom of it, nor even knew about it. Heavy water is not part of a bomb; it's a moderator that SLOWS a fusion reaction so a pile can work. The Nazis stole it from Norway to try to make fissionable material; Norwegian soldiers sank the shipment so the Nazis NEVER built a working pile, while Italian physicist Enrico Fermi had one working in Chicago in 1941 (not Jewish, but fled Italy to save his Jewish wife.) I am not saying that Jews were the only ones making the bomb. But how ironic that Nazi hatred provided many of the top scientists in the project. I am only pointing out the stupidity of bigotry. Had the Nazis managed to survive a few months more, the Atomic Bomb memorial would be in Berlin instead of Hiroshima. Had Hitler NOT persecuted the Jews, HE might actually have had atomic bombs first! How fitting a payback. How surprising that Germany has evolved to perhaps be the leader in tolerance and charity, Enjoy your visit; I'm sorry I'm not with you. Maybe next year.
  • I'm a student of history and the place that helped usher humanity into the nuclear age is definitely a underestimated visit, it is only available for visitation twice a year, April 1st and October 1st. There are some facilites, and food vendors on site, it is an amazing piece of American as well as human history!
  • Looks interesting but I never been there, i don't know how safe it is to be there with the radiation still if anybody been there and know anything about radiation let me know if this safe still or not.
  • Absolutely bresthtaking views and an incredible experience to just see. Amazing. Positives, you don't have to arrive first thing in the morning. We arrived around noon and it wasn't that crowded and we still got to see everything.
  • Flying ants at Jumbo were interesting and got all over you (for a summer visit), but didn't bite anyone. Trinitite was plentiful enough to take some photos of it. Great views of the terrain surrounding the site.
