Reading Room Celebrates Anniversary

In January of 1951 the first atomic test was performed at what was then the Nevada Test Site; since that point nuclear technology played a key role in our state. 

In July the reading room dedicated to preserving that history will celebrate its 30th Anniversary. The Nuclear Testing Archive Reading Room houses thousands of documents from the nuclear age. It has everything from documents to media stories about the Nevada Test Site which is now known as the Nevada National Security Site.

The reading room features documents about the detection and measurement of radioactive fallout from the testing done above and below ground in Nevada, The Pacific Proving Ground and other testing locations. The collection now includes more than 370,000 documents dating back as far as the 1950's. The staff at the reading room help people locate reading materials, videos and media reports in the collection at no charge.

The reading room is open to the public Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at the Desert Research Institute at Flamingo Road and Swenson Street.
