I am a 13 year old who lives in Albuquerque, which is about an hour and half to two hours south. When I got to go, it was pretty bad with constant sand and wind. Now that it is only open one day a year, it was a bad day. The major parts like the Trinitite exhibit is now closed... 更多
This was the pinnacle of a New Mexico road trip that I took with my 13-year old son. We stayed in Socorro. We got up at 06:00, got ready, I went to the McDonalds next to the motel for coffee (which was very crowded), then we left and arrived at the gate at 06:50am. We go right out to the... 更多
Luckily traveling through New Mexico on October 1st we were able to take advantage of one of the two days a year that the Trinity site is open to the public. Be prepared for long lines but some interesting history and pictures. Pets are allowed but the day we were there is was really hot and remember that it is... 更多
The Trinity Site is only open to the public twice a year, in April and October. We visited in October 2016, arriving at 8am to a long line of cars that quickly dissipated when the gates opened just before 9am. There were no cars in line when we left around 11am, so it may not be necessary to get there... 更多
It was very sobering to be at the actual site where the first atomic bomb was exploded. First Saturday in October and April it is open to the public. Well done explanations of how it was constructed and the aftermath. Most interesting was a T-shirt "Before we bombed Japan we bombed New Mexico".
50 yrs living in NM, finally went to see ground zero. Not much there, really. But, it certainly is hallowed ground. Our world Was forever changed by events at that site and i am glad I showed my children. There were peaceful protesters outside the gate with signs indicating they were made ill for generations d/t living downwind of the... 更多
Don't miss the chance to stand in awe at the melted and twisted steel tower that held the first thermonuclear device high in the air to be detonated. Take time to read the explanation panels....look at the sample of sand turned to glass by the fire ball. Marvel at the bulbous shape of the first test item. Then leave the... 更多
This was a once in a lifetime experience, and worth the amount of time it takes to get from the main highway (traffic), to the actual site, unfortunately the day (which are limited) that we choose to go, the farmhouse was not available for a tour, but the rest of the area was open. Be prepared to walk a lot,... 更多
