Atomic Testing Museum

Located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), the Atomic Testing Museum is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. The Museum brings together many aspects of atomic culture through interactive presentations, a short film, and a wide-ranging collection of ephemera from the Cold War period and before. First-time visitors can click on the "Enter The Museum" tab, and they will find several short films that provide an introduction to the museum's exhibits. Also, this section of the site has tabs that include "Atmospheric", "Geiger", "Polaroid", and "Radiation". These areas provide very basic snapshots of the museum's permanent exhibits. Moving along, the site also has an "Education" area with lesson plans and other materials for teachers. Finally, the site is rounded out by the "Exhibits & Events" area, which lists information about upcoming "atomic car shows", art installations, and guest speakers.
