Become immersed in history and visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History after hours for Nuclear After Dark - Trinity Files, an outdoor evening event on Friday, October 6. On this evening, the museum will premiere its replica of the historic 100ft Trinity Tower, host an outdoor screening of the History Channel's "Modern Marvels" The Manhattan Project, welcome local food trucks and brewery and invite visitors of all ages to learn, think, imagine and draw your own conclusions.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the movie will begin at dark. "Modern Marvels" The Manhattan Project is a 45-minute production from the History Channel covering the super-secret atomic bomb project during World War II. This movie will be projected on the back of the museum to be enjoyed under the stars and among the iconic airplanes in Heritage Park. Guests are welcome to enjoy the local cuisine provided by some of Albuquerque's finest food trucks and a local brewery.
Guests are also invited to tour the museum at their leisure, and visit the special exhibition Critical Assembly, the Secrets of Los Alamos 1944: An Installation by American Sculptor Jim Sanborn. In this exhibit, visitors step back in time to a pivotal point in history and experience pure science through pure art. Here, you can explore and study the recreations of the super secrets from the Manhattan Project's atomic bomb.
As an added bonus, the first 100 visitors through the door will receive a free Trinity Tower water bottle and a milk chocolate coin embossed with the museum's logo.
This special event is $15 per person and is not covered by museum memberships or other passes. Tickets are available for purchase in advance below, or admissions will be taken at the door on the evening of October 6.
Please leave all four-legged friends at home (assistance and service dogs are always welcome), and no outside food or drink will be allowed into the event.
