When you think back about all that Cold War anxiety in the '80s -- you can thank New Mexico for it. The birthplace of the atomic bomb now has a fitting tribute to the science and culture behind it. You’ll learn about the bomb’s development at Los Alamos and see some grim photos of Nagasaki after the detonation. Other, less dismal exhibits cover the quirkier sides of the nuclear era, with Three-Mile Island lamps, comic books with radioactive characters and a cool display of the bomb decoders over the years. There’s also a collection of beautiful pro-atomic-energy posters by Swiss American graphic artist Erik Nitsche.
