Great museum regarding nuclear field. Many very elaborate, high tech, informative exhibits. We only had an hour available and wish we had twice the time to spend there. Hard to believe there was no charge for this excellent museum. Great info for all ages.

My father was a machinist on the Manhattan Project and I made the pilgrimage to Los Alamos to honor his memory. I came away with such a better appreciation of what life was like on an every day basis for those who came to Los...More

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 attempts to fix those, so good for you for pointing them out. Barb C. All museums speak from a particular culture's point of view, so I expect that there are other museums that are more expansive on the Pacific history, while this one focuses on many different aspects of the history that happened in this particular locality.
