  • Don’t let the small size of the building fool you – this is an incredibly jampacked experience! The exhibit space had everything carefully laid out on and very well presented, and it gave in very shor...  more »
  • This museum is very well done. It adds to the experience of the Reactor B tour and gives information how life was during the project was in operation.  more »

  • Tri-Cities lacks museums and galleries, so to have something like the REACH for our area, is a treat. It's SO nicely done too! A small museum, it's a neat experience for the kids, with a large aquarium when you enter. Private events like weddings can be done here too (we went to one), and the grounds/facility are lovely. Highly recommend a visit!
  • Small museum with some limited outdoor displays. They try to make it appropriate for all ages. The most fascinating part of the experience was the display of radioactive substances and items, with a Geiger counter to check what was most radioactive. Worth a stop to learn the history of the area and maybe pick up a couple of souvenirs in the gift shop.
  • Excellent museum! Not super great for kids as there is A LOT of reading. But there were some fun things to do outside. Overall, my little family enjoyed it and I learned a lot.
  • My kids love it. It's a bit small, but they do activities all the time that children adore. I like looking at the display about the history of the city and the letter houses. I've been a member for years because of the ASTC and NARM reciprocal programs which not only gets my family entry to the Reach, but also to museums around the country.
  • It's great to have these fun and educational resources in our community. This museum features informational displays of the biological and topographical history of the Tri City area, as well as the same about Hanford and its development.
