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.

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

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.

About as interesting as nuclear testing can be. Wish it would have focused more on people's personal stories and the devastation on the environment. The area 51 bonus makes it worth the fee, but there's no real artifacts for that exhibit.

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.

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.
