The Atomic Legacy Cabin remains closed to the public. During this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, the health and safety of our employees and communities is our highest concern. To assure social distancing and comply with direction that non-essential activities be limited, the indoor areas of our centers will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to update our communications, if anything changes in the status for our indoor areas, and we look forward to the time when we can safely welcome our visitors back inside.
At the Atomic Legacy Cabin, we welcome you to view the exterior of the historic cabin with interpretive signs and the native plant garden with outdoor benches and picnic table.
We ask that guests follow the updated guidance related to social distancing, provided by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Mesa County Public Health.

The Atomic Legacy Cabin presents the history of uranium mining and processing on the Colorado Plateau, as well as Grand Junction’s unique contribution to the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. Exhibits also detail environmental cleanup and the continuing management of legacy sites by the U.S. Department of Energy.
