  • I think it's very important for people to understand history so we don't keep making the same mistakes. Learning about the development of the bomb, the steps that went into all the R&D as well as...

  • Wow -we spent three hours here. We took the guided tour, and then spent some time on our own. Covers prehistory to contemporary times and covers the Manhattan Project in great detail. Fascinating. I thought I knew a lot about this and I was stunned at how much I learned here.
  • Came here hoping to visit the National Park visitors center, but it was closed midweek. But just down the street was this cool, small history museum with helpful staff and free for kids ($5 for adults). Spent about 15 minutes here but it was a decent stop. Don't miss the science center down the street.
  • Interesting bit of atomic history. Worth visiting if you are in the area. Museumbis $5, but the walking tour and lodge are free.
  • Very nice! Several buildings to go through. At least one addition coming in the near future. Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff.
  • Nice little history four families. I was looking for a museum to learn about Los Alamos national laboratory in the Manhattan project, and this has a little bit of information about that. It was only five dollars, and I would say it was worth that
