Science and history by the megaton!
The National Atomic Testing Museum (NATM) is a national science, history and educational institution that tells the story of America’s nuclear weapons testing program at the Nevada Test Site and beyond. From Atomic Age culture to scientific and technological advances during the latter part of the 20th Century, the museum uses lessons of the past and present to better understand the extent and effect of nuclear testing on worldwide nuclear deterrence and geo-political history. Its collections and activities are inseparably linked to serve a diverse public of varied ages, backgrounds and knowledge, and showcase some of the rarest artifacts relating to the nation’s atomic testing program. The museum is supported by the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation and presented in association with the Smithsonian Institution.
