This is a do not miss museum. There is so much to learn, so much personal information from those that lived the founding of the site and the experience of living in that time. The science is just fabulous and kids will love it too.
Our family returned to the Bradbury after a 20-year lapse. The museum has been substantially "updated" with self-guided displace that are probably at the zenith of modern technology - with audio/visual technology to explain various aspects of what happens in the National Lab. Not all...More
There really is so much to this smallish museum! It is divided into about three areas: Manhattan Project/History, Science/Future, Hands On Illustrations. There are also two videos, about 15 minutes each, that run throughout the day, and each display has so many descriptions! Allow at...More
Thanks to an abundance of interactive exhibits, everyone can find something of interest. The short films are also enlightening. One can't help but learn something here and be capitivated by the creativity of the displays. Great place for all ages.
When my wife, pre-teen daughter and I recently walked through the doors of the Bradbury Science Museum, I wasn't sure we'd be there long, as none of us is that deep into science. I was wrong. We ended up spending a couple of hours there,...More

The museum is an interesting attempt to blend a whole lot of local content into a small space, so errors and omissions wouldn't surprise me. Museum folks usually take comments, particularly about errors, seriously and make attempts to fix those, so good for you for pointing them out. Barb C. All museums speak from a particular culture's point of view, so I expect that there are other museums that are more expansive on the Pacific history, while this one focuses on many different aspects of the history that happened in this particular locality.
