History buffs and fans of the movie Oppenheimer have a few very cool places to visit in New Mexico - one of them is top secret and way off limits to the public.

Oppenheimer tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father" of the nuclear bomb and how he and his crew developed and tested the first one in nearby, southern New Mexico.

Work took place at Los Alamos, on White Sands Missile Range and at the Trinity Site;  where the detonation took place. While the test irradiated 3 countries, Trinity Site is today considered safe to visit, (just don't do this), and is opened to the public, for one day only, twice a year.

Los Alamos Laboratory is where, pretty much, all the rest of the work on the Manhattan Project took place. Some parts of Los Alamos are open to the public while others are not. Those "behind the fence" areas will be opened in June to a limited number of guests who must be at least 18 years of age and U.S. citizens able to provide proof of citizenship. Mobile phones and cameras are not allowed.

The tours will take place June 11-13. Registration for the free tours will begin May 1 at 11 a.m. MT and is on a first-come, first-served basis, with only 180 openings available.  - krqe

The link to register will appear here once the window opens.

Oppenheimer fans can also now visit a film set built for the movie at Ghost Ranch. Tours take an hour and a half and are open to those 10 and up. The set includes several buildings used in the movie, one of which was built using the actual blueprints of the real one used back in the day.

Cost is $45, learn more here or send an email to tours@ghostranch.org.
