Become immersed in history and visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History after hours for Nuclear After Dark, an outdoor evening event on Friday, October 5. On this evening, the museum will welcome visitors to be entertained with live music, host an outdoor screening of the History Channel's "Modern Marvels" The Manhattan Project, invite all guests to enjoy local food trucks and brewery, and provide an opportunity for all ages to learn, think, imagine and draw your own conclusions through access to the museum's exhibit's after hours.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the movie will begin at dark. "Modern Marvels" The Manhattan Project is a 45-minute production from the History Channel covering the super-secret atomic bomb project during World War II. This movie will be projected on the back of the museum to be enjoyed under the stars and among the iconic airplanes in Heritage Park. Guests are welcome to enjoy the local cuisine provided by some of Albuquerque's finest food trucks and a local brewery while listening to the music of Beg, Borrow, and Steal Band before and after the movie showing.
Guests are also invited to tour the museum at their leisure, and visit the special exhibition Critical Assembly, the Secrets of Los Alamos 1944: An Installation by American Sculptor Jim Sanborn. In this exhibit, visitors step back in time to a pivotal point in history and experience pure science through pure art. Here, you can explore and study the recreations of the super secrets from the Manhattan Project's atomic bomb.
This special event is $15 per person and $10 for museum members. Tickets are available for advance purchase below, or admissions will be taken at the door on the evening of October 5.
Please leave all four-legged friends at home (assistance and service dogs are always welcome), and no outside food or drink will be allowed into the event. You can bring lawn chairs for comfort, but the museum will provide seating for the 45 minute showing of the Manhattan Project.
