Must-see Las Vegas attractions that aren’t casinos
If roulette makes you dizzy and losing money makes you nauseous, don’t worry: Las Vegas has more to offer than mind blowing casinos and opulent floor shows.
National atomic testing museum
Look beyond Las Vegas hotels and casinos for a more unique experience and plan a trip to the National atomic testing museum, which features artefacts and exhibits dedicated to nuclear testing at the Nevada test site, located just north of Las Vegas. The museum, which became part of the Smithsonian Institution in 2011, also features a Ground Zero theater that shows guests what it’s like to experience a mock bomb attack. There is also an exhibition on how scientists developed the first atomic bomb. Still looking to explore more underground museums? Here is 8 weird museums you never knew existed.
