We thoroughly enjoyed this small museum. It is set in several buildings on beautiful grounds. Be sure to visit the NPS office across the street before visiting, it nicely sets the background for the museum.

This is another really small poorly executed museum. Its hard to believe it actually charges admission. The exhibits and buildings are not worth the trip or the time.

We learned a lot about the history of the Boys Ranch and how its existence were instrumental in having the Manhattan Project work being done in Las Alamos.
