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?

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.
