We spent a couple of hours in this lovely little museum in Los Alamos. Lots of hands-on stuff for older kids and great history of the development and current uses of atomic energy.

If visiting Los Alamos, you have to stop in and tour the museum. Free to the public. Includes a short 16 minute movie on the founding of the town. Many exhibits showing what they did and what they do know (except for the secret stuff!).

Frankly, if you don't have an access to the lab itself, this museum is effectively the only place to go in Los Alamos. It's small, but informative. Room with puzzles would be interesting to youngest. Mind watching the film about the Manhattan project history.

The museum is an interesting attempt to blend a whole lot of local content into a small space, so errors and omissions wouldn't surprise me. Museum folks usually take comments, particularly about errors, seriously and make... More
