Las Vegas cultural activity - Atomic Testing Museum   2006-12-13

 

Only about a mile or 2 from The Strip in Las Vegas, on the outskirts of the University of Nevada campus is a building that houses the 'Atomic Testing Museum'.  Just north of Las Vegas is the 'Nevada Test Site' that in addition to Los Alamos, New Mexico was a key site of nuclear research and testing until recently (the facility still functions in other research capacities for the military).

Due to the proximity of the site to Las Vegas, this museum was founded.
