The featured exhibits at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History provide an objective, accessible window into the past, present, and future of nuclear science. They cover everything from the very origins of atomic theory, the complexity of the political scenarios contributing to World War II, the height of the Cold War, to modern-day advances in nuclear medicine – and even begin to speculate about the future of this fascinating and exciting field. The Museum gives its visitors a memorable and vivid understanding of nuclear science and history.
The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History’s Traveling Exhibit Service has four small, wall-mounted, less expensive alternatives to big budget exhibits! Exhibits normally rent for $1,500 per venue and feature unique and interesting topics. Use these exhibits to complete larger exhibit walls, small exhibit areas or special celebrations such as Black History Month and Women’s History Month.
