Travel Guide

The National Atomic Testing Museum is a national science, history and educational institution that tells the story of America’s nuclear weapons testing program at the Nevada Test Site. The 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.

The museum only takes a few hours to get through, so you can plan for other activities in the area as well. Parking is free, and outside food is not allowed. You can plan to eat before or after your self-guided tour.

From Atomic Age culture to the scientific and technological advances, the Museum highlights 70 years of nuclear testing. Students will even experience a Ground Zero Theater simulation of an above-ground test! Definitely a one-of-a-kind museum, your students will not soon forget what they learn on this trip!
