Atomic Testing Museum

The Atomic Testing Museum museum in Las Vegas, Nevada, documents the history of nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site (NTS) in the desert north of Las Vegas. The museum opened in March 2005.

The museum covers the period from the first test at NTS on January 27, 1951 to the present. Among its exhibits covering American nuclear history is a "Ground Zero Theater" which simulates the experience of observing an atmospheric nuclear test.

The museum is operated by the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation, in association with the Smithsonian Institution.
