    Visit: The National Atomic Testing Museum, 755 E Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89119-7363

    The National Atomic Testing Museum uses lessons of the past and present to better understand the extent and effect of nuclear testing on worldwide nuclear deterrence and geo-political history. It provides collection-based exhibits and learning activities for greater public understanding and appreciation of the world in which we live. Its collections and activities are inseparably linked to serve a diverse public of varied ages, backgrounds and knowledge.

    The National Atomic Testing Museum is one of a handful of private national museums and showcases some of the rarest of artifacts relating to the nation’s atomic testing program. Nowhere else can you see a large nuclear reactor that was used in the development of the nuclear rocket and the first air-to-air missile, Genie. Personal atomic weapons that were developed to use in place of conventional weapons such as the Backpack Nuke and the Davy Crockett Weapon System (recoilless gun) are placed throughout the 8,000 square feet of museum exhibits. From Atomic Age culture to the scientific and technological advances, the Museum highlights 70 years of nuclear testing.

    Your general admission ticket will provide you access to exhibits such as: 
    • Atmospheric Testing Experience where you can experience a simulated atmospheric bomb blast
    • Development of the Bomb: Explore how man came to make the first atomic bomb
    • Underground Testing: See the technology and science that took nuclear testing underground
    • Atomic Culture: Learn how to survive an atomic blast and go beyond "duck and cover" and into the atomic age

    This was the perfect place to spend a few hours for some off-strip enjoyment. It took me about 2 hours to go through the whole museum stopping at most of the exhibits. It's worth the visit if you have some time to spare or just want to get off the main strip for a little while.

    If you have an interest in science then go. Otherwise it is boring and not worth the time. At least that is our thought.

    This is a smaller but very well organized museum. I'm one of the last generations for whom the Cold War was a concern (born early 70s), and getting the earlier history was interesting.There's also information about the need for containment/testing and protecting nuclear

    I didn't know the history and testing information and its connection to Las Vegas. This place is so informative, interesting, and comprehensive. I would for sure recommend it.

    If you enjoy museums you will enjoy this little gem. Has many artifacts and history of nuclear bomb testing program from WWII to current containment. A smaller museum that you can do in hour to two hours. Started out with a very knowledgeable docent that gave a good background
