As part of the Manhattan Project, the world's most brilliant minds convened on the rural Pajarito Plateau in northern New Mexico to design, build, and test the world's first atomic weapons during World War II. Learn about the Manhattan Project by visiting our park's visitor center in the small historic town of Los Alamos. Then continue learning about the Manhattan Project as you hike desert trails, explore local museums, enjoy guided tours, and visit historic sites within the community.
