MISSION Our mission remains a guiding principle of the efforts of our Board of Trustees, volunteers, and professional staff. The museum is a non-profit charitable corporation designated by Congress as the official nuclear museum resource for our nation. The mission of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is to serve as America’s museum resource for nuclear science and history. This is accomplished through presentations of exhibitions and quality educational programs conveying the diversity of individuals and events that shape the historical and technical context of our world.

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History continues exciting progress as an institution making nuclear science and history accessible to tens of thousands of visitors. Through our many programs and exhibitions, our growing group of enrichment camps and classes, the museum has been very successful in enhancing young people’s knowledge and excitement of science and in STEM education.

With an agreement signed on June 24, 2019, the Atomic Heritage Foundation and the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History forged a new collaboration to preserve the history of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Age. This significant agreement ensured that the Atomic Heritage Foundation’s extensive collection of oral histories, interpretive vignettes, and articles about the Manhattan Project and its legacy will remain available to the public for the foreseeable future.

For the Museum, 2019 was a tremendous year for completion of outside displays. During this past year, staff and volunteers took on the effort to repaint the THOR Missile and work continued on the restoration of the MiG-21, the museum celebrated its 50th anniversary of service, and a new Strategic Plan was created and approved by our Board of Trustees. This plan includes exciting additions such as the Museum Artifact Center (MAC) and the Peacekeeper Memorial set for construction as we raise funds.

Founded in 2002, the Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF) is a nonprofit organization in Washington, DC that successfully led efforts to create a Manhattan Project National Historical Park. Established in 2015, the Manhattan Project National Historical Park has three sites: Los Alamos, NM, Hanford, WA and Oak Ridge, TN. As founder and President Cindy Kelly says, “Over the past two decades, AHF has created a broad array of educational and interpretive resources on the Manhattan Project. We are delighted to partner with the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History to ensure that AHF’s online resources remain available to audiences worldwide.”

None of these transformative projects would have been possible without great volunteers and wonderful donated support from individuals, companies, and foundations in our community.

For nearly two decades, AHF has recorded hundreds of oral histories of Manhattan Project veterans and published dozens more discovered in university and private archives. AHF’s goal has been to engage diverse audiences, especially younger generations, in learning about the Manhattan Project. Through first-hand accounts and programs on YouTube, AHF has successfully attracted a very youthful audience with over half under age 35. Last year, 1.6 million people accessed AHF’s online resources. AHF’s website audience continues to grow at rates over 30 percent per year.

Our educational programs grew in visibility and quality as well with our continued contracted service to provide after-school enrichment programming to the Rio Rancho School District for STEM education. Our incredible camp programs impacted hundreds of children, signifying how well it meets the expectations of our area families. Nuclear Science Week, a worldwide celebration of nuclear science, was observed this past fall for the ninth year, right here in Albuquerque, for the BIG U.S. observance. As always, we also had a great Discover STEM Week event among many others. We were honored to display “BUFF: The B-52 Story”, summertime exhibit and a fitting exhibit to showcase our own B-52. We invite you to visit the museum to explore our exhibits, attend an event or public program, and if interested, become a member or supporter. It is through the spirit of collaboration that we achieve our goals and your involvement can make this a reality.

Museum Director Jim Walther is equally enthusiastic. “AHF’s websites will greatly enhance the museum’s online presence. We intend to make full use of the content to enrich our education programs and the museum’s interpretive displays. AHF’s partnership perfectly complements the museum’s strategic plans for the future.” The partnership with the museum is very timely. After 17 years, AHF is closing its physical offices in downtown Washington, DC. With less than 3 percent of World War II veterans still alive, AHF has seen its base of Manhattan Project supporters dwindle over the past several years. With foundations favoring current weapons policy and advocacy organizations and little government support, AHF has found it increasingly difficult to sustain a fully staffed office in downtown Washington, DC. AHF will continue to be managed by President Cindy Kelly who plans to work with the museum on the transition and selected projects. Kelly comments, “I have personally enjoyed working with Museum Director Jim Walther for nearly 25 years and look forward to continuing our partnership.”

This exhibition opened to the public on the week of Balloon Fiesta, 2019.



The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History held a Dedication Ceremony for its newly restored SM-75/PGM-17A Thor intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) on Friday, September 20, 2019, in the outdoor exhibit area known as Heritage Park. Dignitaries, including members of the Royal Air Force, were present to publicly acknowledge the legacy and historical significance of the museum’s Thor missile.

The MiG-21, the museum’s only non-American aircraft, started receiving restoration in January of 2018. The MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter and interceptor aircraft designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. These aircraft were designed in the early 1950s, used primarily between 1959 and 1985 by many communist countries. The Heritage Park Restoration Project Coordinator, Don Baker, worked with six volunteers, including Tom St. A who contributed 321 hours in 2019. The restoration project is on-going with a projected completion date of June, 2020.

Restoration of the missile began at the museum in April 2018 and ten volunteers contributed 1,600 hours of time to the restoration. The total restoration of the Thor missile included $8,500 in materials and services and $2,500 in in-kind donations. Sponsors for the Thor restoration were the Air Force Missileers and Hal Behl, Board Emeritus.
