  1. Hello! We’re planning to visit the Trinity Site April 2019 and are looking for recommendations for RV parks/sites with hookups in the vicinity. Hope to get a response, thank you.

  2. In 1983 I (Kathy Wilkins at that time) painted “Trinity Site” for the opening of Trinity Site to the public. Just asking where the painting might be now if anyone knows.

  3. My wife and I will be visiting this October for our 35th wedding anniversary. The Manhattan Project is one of her major interests and she got me into it as well. We are really looking forward to this trip.

  4. Hi,

    We are planning to go to the site on October 3rd. We would consider taking your shuttle, but what about the “social distancing” protocols, especially riding on a shuttle? lc

    • With the restrictions that the Governor of New Mexico has put in place I will guess that this event will be canceled. Please check back for updates.
