NSTec Donation Supports National Atomic Testing Museum Master Plan
LAS VEGAS – The National Atomic Testing Museum (NATM) will begin development of a master exhibit plan for additional space to highlight the current missions of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), thanks to a $25,000 donation from National Security Technologies (NSTec), the managing and operating contractor for the site.
The donation to the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation (NTSHF) will fund development of a master plan for the museum which will incorporate the current exhibits that are focused on the site’s history, with new exhibits which will highlight the site’s current missions. Those missions include nuclear weapons stockpile stewardship, homeland and global security programs, and environmental management.
“We’re pleased to initiate this first step in helping the museum tell the important and ongoing story of the NNSS,” said Jim Holt, acting president of NSTec, who presented the check. “Since full-scale nuclear testing stopped in 1992, many people have wondered what’s been going on at the NNSS. This master plan will help the museum paint a complete and up-to-date picture of the site and its evolving mission.”
The gift will allow the NTSHF, in cooperation with NSTec, to hire a professional exhibit design firm to develop a conceptual plan for the exhibits which will portray the current programs and activities at the NNSS. The exhibits will initially be located in the temporary exhibit space of the museum, but eventually will be incorporated into the permanent exhibit area.
“We’re extremely grateful for the support from NSTec to help make this new portion of the museum a reality,” said Michael D. Hall, executive director of the NATM. “We can’t wait to begin the planning process that will ultimately lead to a more up-to-date, more exciting National Atomic Testing Museum.”
