National Atomic Testing Museum to show history and myth of Area 51

Area 51 Exhibit To Feature Russian Roswell UFO Artifact At National Atomic Testing Museum.

Area 51 has been called the most secret place on Earth that never existed. And for a long time, that was true.

On March 26, the Smithsonian-affiliated National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas plans to unveil the first-ever Area 51 exhibit, and it will be loaded with UFO and possible extraterrestrial-related items.

The exhibit, dubbed “Area 51: Myth or Reality,” will present the historical records of a place that has long been shrouded in mystery.

So here is the angle:

The National Atomic Testing Museum — the nation’s newest national museum — decided to combine the true stories of those who actually worked at Area 51 with the speculative reports of an extraterrestrial element.

I like this idea (if it is done right). I think it will help dispel some myths. Of course, you won’t sway those who believe there was a true conspiracy beyond the normal level of secrecy. But, it is a good way for people who only know things only from pop culture to hear the real story. Hope to visit someday. But mostly, I hope they don’t screw it up. I’m concerned the myth plus truth will allow people to conflate the two in their minds and reinforce the misinformation.

Here is a promo video for the site.

    I am Ole Sarge – I am so glad the powers that be have finally decided to take us on a tour of area 51. Too many false stories have been generated from rumors about the place. THere are too many things going on in,our country that is being censured by the news networks. All this speaks of under handed work being conducted and withheld from the people.After all if something is ligetiment and not illegle, why cover it up?
    Honest with the public is still a good practice.
