We hit here late in the day just before they closed. We had time to see the movie on the history of Los Alamos and do a very fast tour of the displays. We would like to go back again.

I worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) about 30 years ago as a graduate student. This experience started a life-long love affair with this part of Northern New Mexico.

Much of the LANL is within secure areas and closed to the public. And although a lot of "Secret Squirrel" research still goes on here, there are also many other projects that are less about deterrence and more about humanitarian subjects that affect our daily lives. I was and still am proud that I got the opportunity to work here.

To learn more about Los Alamos, one good place to start is the Norris E. Bradbury Science Museum. It is named in honour of the Laboratory's second director who served his Country here from 1945-1970. The facility is owned and operated by LANL.

The museum features early exhibits, artifacts and documents from the World War II Manhattan Project, including full size models of the Little Boy and Fat Man atomic bombs. There are also displays of the latest in laser, computer, geothermal, solar, nuclear, & other technologies, from health research to environmental studies. Admission is always free and you'll do your children a favour by giving them these kind of opportunities to learn more about science.
