  • Out of the museums in Los Alamos, this is the best by far. It is professional and educational. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The prices are fair and well worth it. Make sure to go to all of the buildings.
  • Wonderfully curated, this museum of our nuclear weapon history, segues gracefully to the future of atomic science, highlighting the discoveries that created cell phones and promise cures for disease. So much to see, it merits several hours.
  • We really enjoyed our time at the museum. Fascinating. And the gift shop was filled with great items at very good prices.
  • Awesome place to learn about the history of Los Alamos and the atomic bomb. Very informative and the staff is amazing and quite helpful.
  • A great place to learn about the Atomic Bomb. Informitive. Good interaction with some of the promps.
