The National Atomic Testing Museum, or Atomic Museum, is a vital institution recounting America's nuclear weapons testing program at the Nevada Test Site. As a national science, history, and educational center, it draws lessons from the past to explore the global impact of nuclear testing on deterrence and geopolitics. The museum, one of the few private national museums, houses rare artifacts like a nuclear reactor, personal atomic weapons, and items reflecting the Atomic Age. Covering 70 years of nuclear testing, it also symbolizes historical events like the end of the Cold War with a piece of the Berlin Wall and the start of the Global War on Terror with sections of the World Trade Center. The museum plays a crucial role in training first responders on potential nuclear threats.
