Find the radioactive objects.

Atomic Testing Museum

Our family stopped in for what we thought was going to be a couple of hours at most. After four hours, my wife and kids had to drag me out. I'm a very technical person and this place is just so interesting and well documented. Maybe husbands should go to spend the day alone?

Atomic Testing Museum

Very interesting. Free parking. Look for a Groupon to save 50%, otherwise $22 an adult.

Miss Atom Bomb magnets.

Atomic Testing Museum

This is a wonderful museum about a terrible topic. Lots of great ironic pop culture specimens with atomic motifs such as cereal boxes, comic books and Miss Atomic Bomb 1957, and a great collection of Geiger counters. Oddly funny/frightening photos of mushroom clouds going off behind Las Vegas casinos in the late '40s. Educational and worth the visit.
