Trinity Tour

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History leads a bus tour to the historically significant Trinity Site on the first Saturday of April and October each year. 

Tour participants tour the McDonald Ranch House, walk to Ground Zero and 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). 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 tour of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History upon return to the museum.

Cost for the tour is $90 per person, due at the time of reservation. To make a reservation for the next trip, please contact Ashleigh Olguin at aolguin@nuclearmuseum.org or 505-245-2137, extension 103
