This museum gives an amazing history of the Manhattan project, but also allows you to learn how nuclear power is used today. Lots of hands on exhibits for all ages.

The museum itself is informative, with one room dedicated to the Manhattan project and the other rooms discussing the current research being done in the area. However, most people aren't driving all the way to Los Alamos to see exhibits they could see at their local science museum. I wish the museum had more info about the development of the atomic bomb and what happened after the war. The other exhibits are mildly interesting. At least the museum is free. Worth a short stop. The drive into Los Alamos is worth the trip alone.

We visited this museum last week. Good information about the Manhattan project. There was no entry fee. Wish there was a souvenir shop.

Some hours at Bradbury Science Museum with some Danish friends to learn more about the history of the production and use of atomic bombs. I came away with a clear understanding of and so much more.

It was informative, thoughtful. Definitely worth a visit!

Nogle timer på Bradbury Science Museum med nogle danske venner for at lære mere om historien om fremstillingen og brugen af atombomber . Jeg kom væk med en klar forståelse af ovenstående og så meget mere.

Det var informativt, tankevækkende. Bestemt værd med et besøg!
