The Atomic Testing Museum

Recommended
This well-curated museum, designed with assistance from the Smithsonian Institution, recounts the history of atomic testing in the US-the good, the bad, and the ugly-through newsreel videos, painstakingly detailed environmental re-creations, and brilliantly interpreted explanations. What's so impressive about the 8,000-square-foot space tucked into the Desert Research Institute is not so much what you see, but the resources that are available at every turn.
