Einstein Gala

The Einstein Gala is New Mexico’s biggest science party of the year! This prestigious black-tie event is the Museum’s most important fundraising event and features a cocktail reception with an amazing silent auction filled with the most unique items in Albuquerque, a delicious dinner experience among some of the most brilliant minds in science and history and thrilling entertainment featuring science experiments that will knock your socks off!

The eveing will also provide the opportunity to honor Barry A. Siegel, M.D., Professor of Radiology and Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine, Director of the Division of Nuclear Medicine at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology and a member of the University’s Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center, as the recipient of the 2016 National Award of Nuclear Science & History. To learn more about  past award recipients, click here.

Proceeds from the Einstein Gala help support the Museum’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs for K-12 students as well as professional development workshops for science and math teachers.

This year, we ask guests to "Think Geek" for the 19th Annual Einstein Gala - taking place on Saturday, March 19, 2016, at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown Hotel - and prepare to enjoy an evening of scientific fun to raise money for a great cause!

Doors will open to a Silent Auction overflowing with uniquely sensational items at 5:30 p.m., and dinner and science fun will follow at 7:00 p.m.

This will also be an evening to remember, so much so that it flows into the next morning! Those who attend the Saturday night gala are also invited to enjoy "Sunday Morning at the Museum," taking place Sunday, March 20, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Guests will enjoy breakfast atop the Museum's very own periodic table of elements in the Museum's foyer as well as meet Dr. Siegel and explore the ins and outs of the Museum in a very special Director's Tour.
