Atomic Testing Museum

755 E. Flamingo Rd.
Las Vegas , NV , United States http://www.atomictestingmuseum.org
(702) 794-5151

Get a serious look at the history of the Nevada test site, along with an exhaustive collection of memorabilia from the era when atomic testing was an aboveground spectator sport in Las Vegas (a 1950’s postcard of the Pioneer Club with a mushroom cloud behind it; a cereal box Lone Ranger Atomic Bomb Ring from 1946). Listen to first-person narratives from people who worked there, delve into the implications of atmospheric and underground testing, and sit on benches in the bunkerlike theater while viewing a film that approximates the experience of watching an atomic bomb explode.

Admission: $12 adults; $9 seniors, military, and children; free for children 6 and under
