Asian American Pacific Islander Month Special Exhibit


The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will debut a temporary exhibit beginning May 1, 2024, in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Month. The exhibit explores and recognizes the contributions, scientific achievements, and impact of Asian American and Pacific Islander scientists and engineers. The poster exhibition in the museum’s Periodic Hall showcases individuals like microbiologist Yee Ching Wong-Staal’s work in AIDS research to Ellison Onizuka, the first person of Japanese descent to fly in space. Asian Americans and Pacific Islander mathematicians, scientists, and inventors have contributed broadly to our nation's greatness and helped change our world. The event is included with museum admission.
