We visited the B reactor museum and it is worth the time to visit. Very informative and especially good if you're a scientist or interested in understanding the making of a nuclear bomb. All the docents were friendly and helpful.

The 2000 Logston Blvd address is the launching area for Tour Bus transportation to the WWII Manhattan Project "B" reactor. Make sure you call ahead and make reservations. It quickly "sells out"

This is a must for people visiting this area. We did the Nuclear Reactor B tour. It was so informative, and eye opening. Amazing considering this whole place was built before computers, and in 11 months! Guides were very knowledgeable. Don't miss it.

You'll have to go to hanford.gov to register. First come, first served. Upcoming dates are July 28, 29, and 30; August 11, 12, 13, 25, 26, and 27. It's a hot ticket for good reason.
