PICTURING WOMEN INVENTORS

Overview

Throughout American history, women with diverse backgrounds and interests created inventions that changed lives every day. But women haven’t always had equal opportunities to be inventors or received as much recognition. The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will host “Picturing Women Inventors,” an exhibition created by the Smithsonian and the United States Patent and Trademark. This temporary display is a poster exhibition that explores the inventions of 19 highly accomplished American women. Astronauts, computer pioneers, and businesswomen join athletes, engineers, and even teenagers in this remarkable group of inventors. The posters will be on view at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History from Saturday, March 6, through Sunday, May 2, 2021.

“Picturing Women Inventors” included with the price of admission into the museum. This special exhibition is sponsored by Dr. Robert Busch and Suzanne Busch. This exhibition will be on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History from March 6 to May 2, 2021.
