On January 27, 1951, the United States tested its first nuclear bomb at the desert expanse of the Nevada Test Site. More bombs were exploded in this no-man?s land and for years, details about these operations were kept under strict confidentiality. In 2005, this clandestine place?s secrets were bared open for the whole world to see.

The Atomic Testing Museum documents the history of nuclear weapons tests. It covers the period from the very first explosion in 1951 to the last. Visitors can simulate the experience of atmospheric nuke test viewing at the ?Ground Zero Theater?. They can touch authentic devices such as Geiger counters, radios and other radiation testing devices. They can also learn more about nuke and the atomic technology from interactive videos and exhibits.
