Staff Report

Visitors have poured into the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos during the three day ScienceFest festival that began Thursday.

People of all ages participated in interactive demonstrations and hands-on activities and listened to dynamic speakers meant to engage kids, families, and individuals who are interested in life-long learning of science, technology, engineering and math.

A Bradbury Science Museum docent said Saturday that some 550 visitors came to the museum on Friday alone compared to a typical number of 350 visitors. Many of Friday’s out of town visitors said it was the ScienceFest promotions that drew them to the hill.

Museum Hours:

  • Tuesday-Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday and Monday: 1-5 p.m.

The Museum is open to the public every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.
