Follow the development of the United States' missile programs at White Sands Missle Range Museum, site of the first atomic bomb test and today home to a collection of historical missile models. Explore the museum's collection of indoor exhibits featuring missile motors, important technology, tools used in the construction process, and more. Don't miss the section detailing the many scientists and engineers who helped make these programs a reality. Afterward, head outside to view the extensive display of missiles once tested here. Keep in mind that the range is still an active military facility and you'll need a security pass to enter. This requires presenting your driver's license and, if coming by car, vehicle registration.
