The evening will also provide the opportunity to honor a prominent person or organization that has had an impact on nuclear issues with the National Award of Nuclear Science & History. This year, we are honored to award Cynthia C. Kelly, President and Founder of the Atomic Heritage Foundation. Ms. Kelly is President and founder of the Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the Manhattan Project and its legacy. From 2002 on, AHF led efforts to create a Manhattan Project National Historical Park, working with Congress and Federal, State and local partners. To learn more about past award recipients, click here. The award celebrates the wide scope of achievement and commitment to furthering scientific endeavor made by individuals in areas of military leadership, medical technology, public policy and government, energy sciences, education and space exploration. Due to the cancellation of the museum's 2020 Einstein Gala, we look forward to honoring our 2020 honoree of the National Award of Nuclear Science & History, Cynthia Kelly, during a special reception to be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020, at the museum. All guests for the 2020 Einstein Gala will be invited to attend this event, and more information will follow soon.

We truly appreciate your consideration and support at this time. If you are interested in requesting a refund for the Einstein Gala, please contact our Administrative Coordinator at 505-245-2137, extension 103, or at With this international issue impacting our not-for-profit institution, if a request for a refund is not administered, your generous support will help the museum maintain high-quality service through its STEM programming.
