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
This small museum was packed with historical artifacts of the secret work that took place in Los Alamos. Visiting the museum was a somewhat uneasy, almost eerie, experience. Knowing the final outcome and seeing the large photographs of it didn't help. I expect to find knowledge and wisdom in a museum but not to feel uneasy. I realize that my... 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.
Amazing artifacts and memorabilia about the history of the Caldera, Ranch School, and Los Alamos and its impact on the world. There is also a brief bit about the geological history of the area and a small gift shop. Fascinating! Free.
Most of the museum is dedicated to the men and women who lived and worked on the highly secret Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb during WWII in the 1940s. It even has a kitchen and living room set up from that era.
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.
