We know that young minds have amazing potential, and we believe in fostering it. Nuclear Science can be understood by children of all ages, and the perspective of the world it gives them will open their minds to endless possibilities. We invite and encourage you to bring your children or students to the Museum, and to utilize the many educational programs we’ve designed just for them.
There are so many amazing things to discover at the Museum! Use our Family Guide to have fun, search for symbols and details in the exhibits, and talk about what you see.
Celebrate Nuclear Science Week with us!! Visit our companion website and learn all about the nuclear world around us!
