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.

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.

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.

Why does the Smithsonian Institute allow affiliation with the Museum when the museum claims to have "ancient alien artifacts"? Mixing facts with fiction puts this "museum" into the same category as the Kentucky "creation museum" It is amazing what some people will do for more money flowing into the coffers.
