Vegas Nuclear

Casinos. Slot Machines. Girls. Sin. Redemption. Vegas is all that, as well as culture and museums -- si, si! The Atomic Testing Museum is a testimony of things hopefully past.

The museum was created at the end of the Cold War era, when the moratorium on nuclear weapons testing started, and the Nevada Test Site -- 65 miles from Sin City -- winded down.
Most people have forgotten it, but the history of the test site and Las Vegas are closely tied. [virtual tour]
