Albuquerque’s Museum of Nuclear Science & History

The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History is one of only seven national museums not located in Washington DC.  The museum not only features a large indoor area that has displays and information certainly about the atomic bombs dropped to end World War II, but also has lots of information about nuclear energy as a whole.  It describes the history of nuclear energy and many of its peaceful applications, such as x-rays and nuclear medicine.

Outside the museum, on nine acres, you will find an actual B-52 aircraft as well as other aircraft, missiles, vehicles and the tower of the nuclear submarine USS James K. Polk.

The museum is located in southeast Albuquerque, at the intersection of Southern Blvd SE and Eubank Blvd SE.  The address is 601 Eubank Blvd SE.  It is very near to the Albuquerque Sunport (airport).

The museum is open 9AM-5PM daily, except on major holidays.  Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $10 up to age 17.  Children 5 and under are free.
