It's a Mad World

This private museum is definitely one of a kind. If you don't like the idea of celebrating weapons designed for 'mutually-assured destruction' (M.A.D.) then you may want to avoid it. But there may be a certain amount of fascination in learning about the history of nuclear weapons testing in the Nevada desert.

The museum is devoted to the theory of 'security through strength', the idea that the more weapons you possess, the safer you will be. And it's unashamed about promoting that view, even to the point of selling souvenir lapel pins based on the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

A bizarre Miss Atomic Bomb fridge magnet from 1957, featuring a glamourous woman actually wearing a mushroom cloud, may appeal to connoisseurs of macabre kitsch.
