  • If you really want to understand the Manhattan project, the history of the atomic bomb, and how we got there, you will appreciate this place. They help you piece together the puzzle of events and consequences. You will come away with profound insights (hard to get from a book).
  • Superb! Grew up in the 50s but fascinated by the recent history. The tour was led by a very knowledgeable couple who had lived and worked at the Los Alamos Lab. Wonderful experience to walk amongst the historic buildings where first junior and senior high boys received an elite and rigorous education. Then they were supplanted by some of the most advanced physical scientists in the world whose assignment it was to build the atomic bomb. I am convinced that terrible as it was, it ended WWII, this sparing many American and Japanese lives, had the war drawn on.
  • Quaint museum with highly knowledgeable staff who are enthusiastic about their subjects. Enjoyed the interactions and the grounds.
  • 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.
  • Very cool to see and learn more about where my grandmother worked during the war.
