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 evening will also provide the opportunity to honor a prominent person or organization that has had an impact on nuclear issues with the National Award of Nuclear Science & History. To learn more about  past award recipients, click here. The award celebrates the wide scope of achievement and commitment to furthering scientific endeavor made by individuals in areas of military leadership, medical technology, public policy and government, energy sciences, education and space exploration. 

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.

The 20th Annual Einstein Gala will place on Saturday, March 18, 2017, at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown Hotel, and the museum will host its annual "Sunday Morning at the Museum" on Sunday, March 19, 2017, with breakfast and special Director's Tour of the museum.
