Nuclear & Uranium Museums

Nuclear & Uranium Museums


From Washington to Tennessee to Colorado, many states across the country have preserved the historical significance of building our nation’s nuclear deterrent during the Cold War through the creation of museums, historical societies and discovery centers. These facilities are often near former production plants or research buildings once used by workers, scientists, miners and engineers who paved the way for nuclear advancements and our nuclear weapons program.

Below is a list of the organizations and facilities across the U.S. of which we are aware. Please let us know if you’d like to add one to our list by emailing or (888) 903-8989.

For 2018, we have created a magnificent calendar that showcases twelve of these historic places. If you have not received this specially created calendar that recognizes your contribution to our national defense, or if you know a nuclear weapons or uranium worker who would like to receive one, please contact us by emailing or (888) 903-8989.
