National Museum of Nuclear Science and History 1

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History was established in 1969 as an intriguing place to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early conception – the Manhattan Project and the Cold War – to today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology.

It’s a place to learn, to imagine, to think, and to draw your own conclusions. We welcome visitors of all ages and all walks of life because the history and science of nuclear energy affects each and every one of us. Children will love Little Albert’s Lab, where inquisitive minds can explore hands-on science activities, and no one will want to miss the aircraft and missiles in our 9-acre outdoor Heritage Park!

At the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, it’s our mission to chronicle the past, describe the present and imagine the future of nuclear science. Learn what’s happening at the cutting edge of energy, nanotechnology and healthcare.
