I love history and pop culture. The Atomic Testing Museum did not disappoint. The exhibits were very well done and it was great to meet a veteran who actually worked at the facility. We used a groupon and found the museum to be a great value. Area 51 exhibit was okay but I wouldn't pay any extra for it.

Great place to learn about the atomic testing and the history around Las Vegas. There is also an Area 51 section that is fun to explore.

2nd visit to this museum and it is still great. The history of atomic testing as relates to Las Vegas and society as a whole is laid out in a very cool way. There is a lot of information in this museum.

This museum is mentally stimulating and will leave you a little tired. Probably the most accessible information about this unique field and carries on the history of nuclear testing.

We visited around noon on a Sunday. Very few visitors at that time. Great history, but you would need to have an interest in this field and be willing to read the displays. Skip the silly Area 51 display.

This was a very well presented over view of America's atomic bomb testing history. It drove home how important it is for us to learn from our past as we look towards our future. Easy to located, great parking and a great Indian restaurant across the street. Mint Indian cafe.

So many fascinating things to learn here. Enjoyed playing with the Geiger counter, learning about the atomic impact on the environment, native people, and pop culture as well as the science of the process. Area 51 exhibit asked some interesting questions.

We loved this museum. It peaks your imagination and is very informative regarding what went on in Area 51. It has more information than one can possibly read in one visit. If you have ANY interest at all in how bombs were made and tested, you will love this museum. There is also a section regarding aliens as well that... More
