National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History
There are numerous sides to every story, and that's certainly the case when it comes to man's mastery of the atom. The National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History chronicles the events before, during, and after the Manhattan Project brought about the atomic bomb and thrust the world into the nuclear age. The museum gives equal weight to both the bad and good, from the tensions of the Cold War to the benefits that nuclear technology has brought to modern medicine.
