Interesting museum that showed the way of life in the 1940's while scientists were developing the atomic bomb. There is a cool walking tour (self paced), where you can see where scientists lived and played, plus the location where bomb was developed.
Well done little museum, especially about the years of the Manhattan Project to build the first atomic bomb, but covers much more than that.
The Los Alamos Historical Museum was small, but it has some nice exhibits. I learned details about the history of Los Alamos that I was not previously aware of. I was not familiar with the ranch school that operated in the area prior to World War II. I did find that the museum was a bit overly sympathetic to the... 更多
The museum was very interesting. Many displays to involve children as well as adults. The displays and memorabilia were "on target" - a good lesson about our past history.
We had no idea what to expect when visiting the town of Los Alamos. With little time to explore we decided to visit the historical museum. We were very impressed. More history and information than we ever expected and really a high quality experience. And it's free! The docents are very knowledgeable as well. Two hours is more than adequate... 更多
SIted in an historical log cabin on the site of the old boy's school which was kicked outto make room for the Manhattan Project, this museum has a broad range of information, beginning with the geography of the area, the native american inhabitants, the boy's school and the creation of the Manhattan Project through the dropping of atomic bombs on... 更多
There are some interesting exhibits on the boys' school before the Manhatton Project took over the site. Also, there's a whole display on the atomic spy case of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Overall, it's a small museum, so may not be of much interest for children. The lady at the desk was friendly, but we found the place difficult to... 更多
I was surprised how much information and memorabilia they crammed into this small building that used to be part of the boys' school that was located here before the government took it for the secret project to develop the bomb. A good part of the display is devoted to that school, and what it was like. You walk through the... 更多
I did not very much about what secret scientific work was performed at Los Alamos in the mid 1900's. Such a secret world existed and it was pretty much hidden from the outside world. The Historical trail is worth the trip too although the "Beware of Rattlesnakes" sign is a bit scary.
