The Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas displays the work conducted at the Nevada Test Site and its impact on the Unitied States.
The 8,000 square foot permanent exhibit hall includes artifacts on loan from personal collections, the Smithsonian Institution, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and pieces of the Berlin wall and World Trade Centers. Designed to be a highly interactive experience, the exhibits include touch screens, motion-sensitive plasma TV presentations, audio interviews with former workers from the test site and various other multi-media components.
In addition to the permanent exhibits, the museum also has a 2,000 square foot changing exhibit hall, a museum store and a History Walk. Adjacent to the museum are the Nuclear Testing Archives, a collection of over 310,000 documents related to radioactive fallout from U.S. testing of nuclear devices.
