Trinity Tour

Registration now open for October 5, 2019, 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 also includes a catered lunch at the museum after the Trinity Tour. 

Please be prepared to walk, as there are multiple times in which walking it necessary to get from one point to another. Charter buses will take all visitors from the museum to Trinity Site, but guests must walk to military buses (similar to yellow school buses) once arriving at Trinity Site. There are five steps to get on and disembark both types of buses.

Cost for the tour is $90 per person, due at the time of reservation. To make a reservation for the next trip, please register below. If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Whitman at swhitman@nuclearmuseum.org.
