Like most things in Las Vegas, it was kinda cheezy. If you want to see a good Atomic Weapons Museum, go to Albuquerque New Mexico. They have an amazing museum there that includes an outdoor static airplane and missile display.

It was a great visit but the Area 51 section was a bit of a let down. The docents were great. Well worth the visit.

Awesome place to go and learn about America's nuclear testing program. The visual displays are very informative and interactive. Plan on spending at least two hours or more. Worth the visit. I would not miss out especially if you are interested in the subject.

If you're incredibly interested in atomic history - then this is a great museum to visit. Just be aware that the material is quite historic, so it may not be a great family event (there are no cuddly bears for baby to ooh and aah about here). The exhibits are very detailed, with a broad range of elements from actual hardware (amazing) to old school propaganda (so cool to see) to test information. You can easily spend hours reading through the exhibits, watching the small films and checking out what is in the museum. There is also an "Area 51" tour, which is very...strange. It feels like a super campy addition to what is a very serious museum. I can only recommend the Area 51 tour as a throw-away addition to the main tour. It's just too small and too campy to really be taken seriously. Overall - a great place to check out!

I recommend going there. The museum exhibits were well maintained and it was overall a fascinating day out.

It was really interesting! I prefer to learn the politics behind stuff like this, rather than the technical details, and the museum had plenty of both. The exhibition about aliens was crap though.

My time at the museum was limited because I arrived after 2 p.m., but rather than miss the whole thing entirely I just threw down and did it. Quickly. I'm glad I did. The museum is absolutely packed with artifacts and data about the history of atomic testing. It houses six galleries, a movie theater and two World Trade Center artifacts. If you're even remotely interested in the history of the atom bomb or America's nuclear program, this museum is definitely for you. If you couldn't be bothered, you should still go. Here's why - and I won't get preachy - sure it's important, but there are parts that are really fun. Well, the Atomic Age Gallery was fun - housing dozens of artifacts from the 50s and 60s, including a Disney film which explains a nuclear reaction. Don't miss it! There's a lot of information here and you probably won't get to it all. I wasn't able to check out the ground zero theater where you can "immerse yourself in a multi-sensory experience that simulates an above ground test" but I sure wanted to.
