Las Vegas’ National Atomic Testing Museum to receive $2M for exhibits and programs


Las Vegas Weekly Staff

The National Atomic Testing Museum will receive $2 million in federal funding to boost Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education for visitors and student programs. The museum, operated by the nonprofit Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation and a partner of the Smithsonian Museum, announced the funding after Congress passed the appropriations bill for fiscal year 2022. “The museum is especially grateful to Congresswoman Dina Titus and her staff for their work to ensure this funding was included in this year’s omnibus appropriations bill,” said Darwin Morgan, the museum’s board of trustees president. The funding will be used to integrate “immersive technology” in exhibits, including virtual and augmented reality activities. Planning for updates and education programs is underway.
