The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, located 601 Eubank Blvd. SE in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the nation’s only congressionally chartered museum in its field and an intriguing place to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early research of nuclear development through today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology. The Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate member. Open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Across Eubank from Costco one can see the missiles and aged aircraft and I often thought I should visit. Last evening, to hear author Eric Schlosser, we did — briefly. It’s good and we plan to tour the museum more thoroughly soon. And the gift shop was (inexplicably) not open during the special (well-attended) event. It’s not a real visit to a museum if it doesn’t include the gift shop.
