Closure Update due to COVID-19

We are committed to providing our visitors with safe and enjoyable visits, and it is for this reason the museum interior remains closed under the state's supervision. Heritage Park, the nine-acre outdoor exhibit area, and the Museum's Retail Store are now open daily, from 9 am to 4 pm. Learn more.

Einstein Express

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History’s Einstein Express Program offers field trip busing assistance to Title 1 public schools in Albuquerque and the surrounding area. The program provides up to two buses (at the same time) per school per year for transportation to and from the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. One chaperone for every 10 students is required.

This program operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. Funding for the year is limited, so apply early! Funding is for buses only and cannot be used for Museum admission, programs, or tours that require an additional charge. You can find descriptions and pricing for programs on the Field Trips & Outreach page. Selection of a self-guided tour ONLY is not eligible under this busing assistance program.

Schools will not be selected for multiple programs each year including Nuclear Science Week, Discover STEM Week, and Einstein Express. Qualified schools will only be considered every other year for busing assistance.

To apply, please fill out our online Teacher Application and have your school’s principal to fill out the Principal Support Form. Your application is not complete until we have received both forms. Once we receive your forms, we will contact you with further information.

If you have any questions, please contact us at lguida@nuclearmuseum.org.
