Exhibits to Rent

Is you organization searching for an exhibition to rent? The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History offers a variety of exhibitions covering topics ranging from nuclear science to World War II and the many men and women that played a role in shaping it. The exhibitions are wonderful for institutions on a budget as they range from $1500 to $5000 per month. These are also great for places with a limited amount of exhibition space as our exhibits range from 500 sq. ft to 2,000 sq. ft. Some, such as our Atoms for Peace Poster exhibition and Art of the Reactor exhibition, can be combined to create one larger yet still cohesive exhibition. These exhibitions are also perfect for celebrating Women’s History Month and Black History Month!  CLICK HERE to view our brochure giving an overview of the available exhibits to rent.
