It's nice to be able to see some of the buildings that was used in the Manhattan Project and what conditions they worked in. They have great docents working here and they know their history. Great place to spend a couple of hours.

This is a small gem of a museum devoted to the history of the town. Do not think small children would be interested but great for teens and adults. Allow at least 90 minutes to thoughtfully review the exhibits. Excellent volunteer staff.

Great place to fully understand history of los alamos. Do take advantage of the docents. All were very knowledgeable and long term residents. Be sure to visit Hans Bethe house.

We went to Bradbury museum first and then stopped here. The grounds and the pond are beautiful! We enjoyed the stroll and looking through the lodge. Good information. It is a work in progress.
