Visit the Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas Nevada
The name of the museum is The Atomic. We are located here in Las Vegas, Nevada about a milestone of the street which is very varied visitors to come visit us. The last on the ground nuclei test took place here at the Nevada test site was in September of 1992 and so people got together and they decided well the best to preserve it of course is to have a museum.
When you come up at the museum it’s like you’re in 1945. The concern of the Nazis would come up with an atomic bomb and then they’ll take it to the trinity test which will increase test on atomic bomb in the July 16, 1945.
The Nevada Test Site had probably 10,000 to 12,000 people working and building up on nuclear weapons in the stock pile and so it was very busy.

I don’t recall if we had computers in those days or we have typewriters and we have radio communications but that’s the probably a sophisticated movie.
We have a couple to display here in the museum and primarily things that were put together from the 50’s and so at the advertising and some of the activities, the little cereal, the Kix cereal for example I have little goodie goodies and a little atomic type goodies and that so was an exciting area. People were really, I mean, it was new. It was unique and the Kix cereal for example I have little goodie.
I think the atomic testing museum is such a unique venue. So that when you come to Las Vegas there are other things that people can come and learn about the history of atomic test. People can come and learn about the history of atomic testing which--
