At the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, all our guests and members of our community are extremely important to us. We are committed to providing our visitors with safe and enjoyable visits, and it is for this reason we are closed temporarily to ensure we follow public safety best practices.
Though our doors are closed, our museum team is working diligently behind the scenes to produce the most exceptional educational resources and enhanced exhibitions for our visitors, as we look forward to serving our community soon. The museum has also been cleaned and disinfected thoroughly in our commitment to maintain a safe environment for our visitors.
The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is an educational institution that is a non-profit organization that receives no city or state funding. We are here because of our visitors, and your support helps us remain America’s resource for nuclear science and history.
The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is your museum, and any support you generously give ensures the museum facility and staff are able to reopen soon and provide you with the best events, exhibits, and education opportunities possible. By becoming a member, your membership will remain valid one year from the month we reopen to the public.
We are grateful for your support in helping us remain relevant to our community, and we look forward to see you all again when we re-open.
