Some photos from my visit.
Inside the museum
A 1930s quack medical device. You put a radium source inside, and it, uh, energizes the water and gives it healthy properties.
This gadget from the 1950s used x-rays to help you fit your shoes. Since the top wasn’t shielded, it also gave you a big dose of x-rays in a place where you did not want to get a big dose of x-rays.
A calutron. This magnetic device was used to separate uranium-235 from natural uranium as fuel for the Little Boy bomb.
A mock-up of “The Gadget”, the implosion plutonium device tested at Trinity
Two dented nukes. The casings of the bombs recovered at the Palomares Broken Arrow incident
“Atomic Annie” nuclear artillery cannon
Mark 17 hydrogen bomb
