Located in the heart of the city the American Museum of Science and Energy (AMSE) inspires young and old to explore atomic energy. Officially opened in 1975 the museum has come a long way since its humble inception in 1949 in an old wartime cafeteria. The museum was orginally name the American Museum of Atomic Energy but that name was changed in 1978. Guided tours explore the history and peaceful uses of atomic energy.

With permanent and rotating exhibits the museum has a lot to offer everyone. When you visit you will find robots, science puzzles, an NOAA weather station, a timeline of atomic discoveries, the atomic theatre, and the solar demostration project, to name a few exhibits.

Beyond the exhibits the museum works within the local and global community to inspire and educate. There are numerous resources available for teachers and students at their website www. amse.org.

The museum is open seven days a week and admission is intentionally kept low.
