For Teachers 

Visit the Museum

The Bradbury Science Museum offeres unique resources and experiences for groups.

Bring History to Life
Examine primary sources and artifacts from the World War II Manhattan Project at Los Alamos from Einstein's letter to President Roosevelt to the electronic fireset that set off Fat Man. Watch the 17-minute documentary film The Town that Never Was. Meet some of the people who played important roles at Los Alamos.

Science Inspiration
Participate in interactive exhibits showcasing current LANL projects such as nanotechnology, algae biofuels, environmental monitoring, supercomputing, and understanding radiation. Listen to personal narratives recorded by current Los Alamos scientists about the work they do. The museum also features an outstanding exhibit about Los Alamos' contributions to Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory rover.

Challenge Yourself
Use scientific thinking to solve problems at our puzzle tables, then try your hand at our particle accelerator simulation game or learn to operate a Marchant calculator and be a human computer.

Scavenger Hunts and Activity Sheets
Tour the museum using scavenger hunts and activity sheets specifically tailored to different age groups, from preschool children through adults. Available online or at the museum upon your arrival.
