The Einstein Gala is New Mexico’s biggest science party of the year! This prestigious black-tie event is the Museum’s most important fundraising event and features a cocktail reception with an amazing raffle and silent auction filled with the most unique items in Albuquerque, a delicious dinner experience among some of the most brilliant minds in science and history and thrilling entertainment featuring science experiments that will knock your socks off!
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.

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.
Proceeds from the Einstein Gala help support the Museum’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs for K-12 students as well as professional development workshops for science and math teachers.
