Every year, the prestigious Einstein Gala hosts a unique and beautiful silent auction, providing guests with a variety of intriguing items to purchase in support of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History's education programs. As the largest fundraising event of the year - where all proceeds go to the museum's STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education programs - staff and volunteers work diligently to provide amazing trips, beautiful artwork, breathtaking jewelry, once-in-a-lifetime packages and more! Below is just a sample of some of our very unique items presented in this year's Einstein Gala Silent Auction.
