  • This is another really small poorly executed museum. Its hard to believe it actually charges admission. The exhibits and buildings are not worth the trip or the time.  more »
  • The series of building showed what living was like at the time of the Manhattan Project. It was interesting to see the old furniture and visit the lodge.  more »
  • Having lived through the cold war, I think this museum and others like it should be mandatory viewing for anyone younger than 50. There is so much to know and learn about what happened at Los Alamos t...  more »

  • Fascinating stories, displays are very well done, be sure to walk to home as well. Great value for 5 dollar entry fee. Well worth the time!
  • They've just recently renovated their entire museum space. It has a modern feel coupled with the feel of the time period (1940 and up). Their interactive pieces are neat and fit within the time period. The video at the end was very well done and really though provoking...I urge people to visit this place.
  • Cool stuff in the museum. Some informational movies available. Plenty of information and displays. Some interactive elements. Kids area with learning activities. Only negative is some of the people working there were a little over-the-top friendly. Still, I highly recommend.
  • The density of knowledge per square foot is higher than any museum I have experienced anywhere. Don't bring your kids here. But definitely bring your uncle with three ph.ds - he'll totally freaking love this place.
  • High quality museum, lots of information well interpreted, but a little self congratulatory about the whole killing 200,000 civilians thing. Selling a hat pin souvenir of "little boy", for instance, kinda questionable taste.
