LAS VEGAS, NV.- The National Atomic Testing Museum
currently has the first ever exhibit on Area 51 on display. This unique exhibit titled Area 51: Myth or Reality explores the cultural perceptions and historical records of the most secret place in America. The exhibit will be run for 18-months.
Area 51 has long been a place of mystery, spawning speculation about secret weapons, technology that verges on science fiction and sightings of unusual unidentified aircraft. Movies have taken the Area 51 myth and fleshed it out with underground bases and aliens. The Nations newest national museum, the National Atomic Testing Museum, has meshed these two areas into a very real look at Area 51, based on true stories from those who worked there as well as those who have spent years studying and exploring extraterrestrial sightings and UFOs.
Area 51: Myth or Reality will take the visitor into the story and challenge them to decide what is real and what isnt.
Museum staff has worked with numerous people to bring this exciting exhibit to the public including Emmy award winning journalist George Knapp, scientists from SETI, former Area 51 workers, famed pilot Ken Collins, and many others. The Las Vegas Centennial Grant Commission and Moab Publishing have provided funding.
In addition to changing temporary exhibits the National Atomic Testing Museum showcases its collection of more than 12,000 unique artifacts in educational and inspiring exhibits. There is something for everyone to experience in dynamic displays presenting the history of the development and testing of one of mans most significant inventions, a nuclear bomb.
The Museums exciting exhibits offer something for everyones interest and age.
