A Message from the Museum

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. There is no timed ticketing, as we can operate at 50% capacity. Please feel free to purchase your tickets in advance or purchase them when you arrive at the museum. As per the updated CDC guidelines, museum visitors, staff, and volunteers who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks while visiting the museum.

*Advance, online purchase of tickets is not a requirement.


Your Safety is our Goal.

  • Due to state regulations, we are operating at 50% capacity.
  • As per the updated CDC guidelines, museum visitors, staff, and volunteers who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks while visiting the museum.
  • Plexiglass barriers have been introduced to the museum's facility to continue protecting visitors and staff during interactions, and floor decals placed 6-feet apart will be visible within the museum to help with social distancing.
  • To protect our guests, our interactive exhibition, Little Al's Lab, will be temporarily closed. In the event this exhibition opens as restrictions lift in the state of New Mexico, increased frequency and cleaning measures will be implemented on all high-contact areas and objects within the exhibition.
  • There will be an increase in the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting across the entire building, including the museum store and exhibitions.
  • For your convenience, sanitizer stations throughout the museum will remain full for customer, employee, and volunteer use.
  • Museum guests are encouraged to utilize remote ticketing options to limit contact upon arrival.

What we are asking visitors to do.

  • As safety is of utmost importance! The New Mexico Department of Health on Friday, May 14th, announced the state’s adoption of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated guidance on facemasks for those who are fully vaccinated. Per the CDC, in most circumstances, fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask in either indoor or outdoor settings. The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is following these guidelines. All individuals who are unvaccinated or not yet fully vaccinated are still required, per the public health order and CDC guidance, to wear a mask in public settings, including the museum.
  • Any facility rental, event, or program must abide by the state’s limitation of the number of people who may gather at one time. This is now listed as 150.
  • We do ask that any museum guest stays home if you are sick, feel unwell, or have any cold symptoms.
  • In this amazing museum, there are so many opportunities to spread out and explore quieter exhibition spaces you’ve never experienced before for the safest and most comfortable experiences!
