Upcoming Events

Donate to the MAC to Help Preserve History
A special, one-month campaign to raise funds to help preserve history, May 14-June 11.

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is launching an ambitious, one-month campaign in Indiegogo starting May 14th to raise funds to construct a specialized storage building in our nine-acre, outdoor Heritage Park to house the nation's largest collection of unclassified nuclear defense artifacts, and we would like to ask for your help! This 5,000 square foot Museum Artifact Center (MAC) will help our Smithsonian Affiliated Museum properly preserve and store more than 120 large pieces of Cold War history that we look forward to sharing with the community through behind-the-scenes tours. Please consider helping us preserve history and share our community's collective memory by supporting the construction of the MAC!
