The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History leads a bus tour to the hisotrically significant Trinity Site on the first Saturday of April each year.
Tour participants walk to Ground Zero, view Jumbo (code name for the 214-ton Thermos shaped steel and concrete container designed to hold the precious plutonium core of the Trinity device in case of a nuclear mis-fire), and enter the historic McDonald Ranch House. While on the bus, docents will also provide insight into historical events and the scientific pioneers of the Manhattan project. The tour includes lunch at the Burger Bodega in Socorro and a talk entitled "Going to war with the atomic bomb."
Cost for the tour is $75 per person. To make a reservation for the next trip, please call Molly Brunell at 505-245-2137, extension 109.
