Visiting NNSS Facilities

Currently, the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) is welcoming only official visitors to its facilities. Official visitors are those who have been invited by an NNSS employee. It is the host's responsibility to coordinate any necessary badging or access permission, ensure visitors are aware of NNSS COVID protocols, and arrange to meet guests at a designated location.

If you plan to visit, there are several things to keep in mind. You must present valid photo identification as well as the name(s) of the person(s) you are visiting upon entering the facility. All persons and vehicles entering NNSS facilities are subject to search.


The North Las Vegas Facility is located at 232 Energy Way, North Las Vegas, NV 89030. Click here for directions.

The Site is located 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas, off the U.S. 95 Mercury exit. Click here for directions.

Directions to all other NNSS facilities will be provided by your host.
