Support The Museum

Annual Fund

Through support of the Annual Fund, we are able to restore all of our airplanes in Heritage Park, host over 7,500 New Mexico School Children in field trips to the museum, explore science with 900 summer campers, bring 3,000 students to the museum for Discover STEM Week and Nuclear Science Week and more.

Your generous support of our Annual Fund will make a difference in the museum, in the community and in the exceptional exhibits we provide for our visitors. Your contribution will help ensure our role as the nation’s resource for nuclear science & history and allow us to deliver high quality programming for which our museum is known.

Your support also enables us to continue delivering science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs for students and teachers both at the museum and through outreach to the Albuquerque community.

From the museum’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers, thank you for helping inspire our future generations of scientists and engineers.

Your gift to the Annual Fund will support:

  • $50 – STEM education supplies
  • $75 – Healthy snacks for school and camp programming

Bridge of Spies and Meet Francis Gary Powers, Jr. - November 22

One of the most talked-about events of the Cold War was the downing of the American U-2 spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union on May 1, 1960. The event was depicted in the Steven Spielberg movie Bridge of Spies, showing how Powers was captured by the KGB, subjected to a televised show trial, and imprisoned, all of which created an international incident. Join the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History to meet with Francis Gary Powers, Jr., author of the book "Spy Pilot" and son of the U-2 spy pilot to view a special showing of Bridge of Spies at the museum.
