The museum is great. Lots of history of the making of the atomic bomb. The photos are wonderful. The videos are short and informative. It was a great way to spend a couple hours on a chilly day!

In my opinion this museum is one of the finest museums for youth. They have very accurate videos, dealing with World War II. There is also fine science activities and enhancements to wars and respect of those who had taken place.

We have always brought friends and family here from Albuquerque to give them an idea of the importance of Los Alamos in the development of the atomic bomb. This was best done with the film, ‘The Town that Never Was’. We had hyped it up...More

If you are interested in all the goings on at Los Alamos National Laboratory then check out this museum. You will find that there is more to the lab than the bomb. Well worth the time!

Most of the information presented in this museum was over my head, but the movies were very informative. If you are a scientist, love history or want to know what is new in science, this place is for you.

The museum is very well done with lots to see. There are films, mock ups, and so much information you can spend all day. We have been there before and they change some things.

Luckily for us foul weather gave us a chance to visit this museum. We didn't spend much time here, but found things very informative & fascinating. Definitely surprised to view replicas of atomic bombs dropped on Japan. Both were substantially smaller than I ever imagined

We went to learn about the history of the Manhattan Project. Lots of information on the walls so you can kill all the time you want here. The film is very interesting, worth the drive from Santa Fe.

While in Los Alamos we wanted to make this stop being it is part of our history. I found it very interesting and informative even being non science/engineering in nature or profession type. Lots of hands on for younger children to hold their attention.

The museum is an interesting attempt to blend a whole lot of local content into a small space, so errors and omissions wouldn't surprise me. Museum folks usually take comments, particularly about errors, seriously and make... More
