Review:

The family can easily spend several hours at this highly educational museum. This museum is quite different from others as it showcases the history of nuclear programs and the power of nuclear weapons, and is a great opportunity for your kids to learn all about the Cold War. There are many artifacts on display together with interactive exhibits. Students will find the simulation of a nuclear detonation above the ground absolutely fascinating.

Guided tours of the museum take an average of 1 hour. The museum also offers lesson plans for teachers and school tours.
