The Los Alamos historical society has done a great job, of going back in time, so that you can see why indians as well as Oppenheimer liked the location of this town.
Learn even more about Los Alamos and it's beginning. A little museum tucked away in the corner but worth seeking it out. Lots of old letter, newspaper clippings, ration stamps, and other things we don't see today. It won't take long to visit but we enjoyed even more unknown facts about the area. Children most likely will not be entertained.
cute place, housed in an old vintage los alamos building. Tells you all about historical aspects of how the fame of los alamos was a ranch school and how it got requisitioned for the war efforts for the Manhattan project work, the leading characters, their lives, photos and artefacts and anecdotes one could easily spent a couple of hours as... 更多
The "Atomic City" is more than just the birthplace of the bomb. Wonderful video at the museum and little shuttles in the area can inform you on why this site was chosen and the relationship they have with the Native Americans today. Be sure to go to the Bradbury Museum for hands on creative fun. And visit the Ranch House... 更多
We had visited this delightful museum many years ago, and found it had updated its fine exhibits on native peoples of the area, as well as added a special exhibit about the latest news about the Rosenbergs' spy case and execution. Interesting to adults and children alike, not only those interested specifically in science. "The Atomic City" had other pasts,... 更多
I started out at the Bradbury Science Museum and while nice, I enjoyed the walking tour and Historical Museum more. It focuses more on the early town and how it developed for the Manhattan Project. Give yourself an hour, take your time and enjoy the area. Read the plaques at each stop. There are tables if you would like to... 更多
This is a very small building but a lot of historical information is stuffed into this place. You probably only need 30 minutes to 45 minutes here. A great book store with some interesting books about this secret place of the past.
Los Alamos is in New Mexico. It is an artificial town that was built with the sole purpose of producing the Atomic Bomb. It has about 17,000 people as against the 27,000 who were there when the bomb program was in full sway. It now houses government and military research establishments. Roads have names like O'Pinheimer Way - the father... 更多
Visit two of the original buildings used during the development of the atomic bomb. This small museum gave one a look into how the scientists and their families lived. Also the building next door was taken over from a boys boarding school for this project. I found the info on the boarding school also interesting. But the memorable in the... 更多
This museum is an outstanding representation of the science behind the atom bomb as well as the history of its development. Set in the location where the bomb was developed in secret, the museum creates an understanding of the incredible cultural feat that occurred in Los Alamos. An entire secret community of young healthy people working on a unified mission... 更多
Be sure to stop here when you're in town to see the Bradbury Museum and its models of Fat Man and Little Boy. Here is a model of the Trinity device. You can't help but have profound feelings about looking at this little thing that changed the world. You might be impressed, as I understand many of the scientists were,... 更多
Lots of good stuff on display, nicely presented, but small and really could use some good investment to make the most of it. I hope they get a good infusion of cash. Great, knowledgeable friendly staff. Looks like some of the exhibits came from central casting, as I saw the same replica atom bombs in other New Mexico museums. Very... 更多
The location in a historic log cabin is appropriate, but a lot is crammed in here. The volunteers are 99 percent gracious and perhaps 75 percent knowledgable, especially in the bookshop. One room dedicated to the school that was the original occupant of The Hill documents the model of the Teddy Roosevelt outdoor experience for boys, the heritage of wilderness... 更多
This historical society does a great job of telling what life was like during the Ranch School days and the building of the Atomic Bomb. It is a must see for anyone visiting Los Alamos. They have information on a self-guided walking tour. If you go to their web-site, losalamoshistory.org, you can find all kinds of resources and a link... 更多
