Welcome to part 5 of our family vacation to Las Vegas series!
Get caught up with Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4!

We love to go to museums. Really, we do!
And add to that a whole exhibit on AREA 51… well it was a necessity that we check it out!

The National Atomic Testing Museum {In Association With The Smithsonian Institute, I love the SMITHSONIAN!!!} is a bit off the strip… it took us about 15 min to get there but it was worth the little excursion.

We were immediately greeted by this awesome robot that had a space edge to him! I had to restrain The Toddler because she just wanted to kiss him!

Because AREA 51 is such a highly guarded secret… this was the last of the pictures that I took. Looks pretty cool though huh? We were all excited to walk through the closely guarded doors. The exhibit is full of information that makes you really wonder about AREA 51. I loved all of the newspaper articles and TV coverage from years past that they have playing as you walk through the exhibit. There were also videoed interviews with experts on the subject. My oldest found it fascinating and wanted to spend hours exploring. If you have a Science Fiction, outer space or Alien fan in your home this would be a great spot to add to your Las Vegas itinerary.

Thank you to the PR department for allowing us to view the AREA 51 exhibit. We were provided tickets to facilitate this review. All opinions are mine.

  • Wow! This exhibit sounds super cool. I would absolutely love to go there. These kind of things so facinate me. Sounds like a plan in our future to visit this museum.
