The Trinity site is open to the public twice a year on the first Saturday in April and October. It is possible to visit ground zero where the first atomic bomb was tested. The topsoil has been removed and radiation levels are low for a quick visit (you get more radiation exposure from your food in a year).

The site is not surprisingly very remote.
