Stayed in the area an extra day to see these museum buildings. My wife had lived in Los Alamos as a child, so reconnecting with her roots was big part of our 6 week trip in the Southwest. Each of the volunteers helped make the historical areas like Bathtub Row come alive with their knowledge of each building and its history - plus the curious people who lived here in the 40's, 50s, & 60s. They aided us also in finding old locations no longer in use, and great photo ops that we later were able to chat about together. Very personalized education after 60 years . . . The Hans Bethe House was especially interesting to us when we found a model ( like ours at home) of the NS Savannah on display. Her father has 5 patents for its reactor, so it was a nice find. Then I walk outside & find I'm looking over the fence at Oppenheimer's House! Amazing things at every turn . . .
All in all I would highly recommend the Museum to any tech oriented kid or adult. Combined with the Bradbury, it's worth an hour drive from Sante Fe (unless it's snowing . . . )
