The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is the nation’s only congressionally chartered museum in its field and a Smithsonian affiliate. Originally known as the National Atomic Museum, it was established in 1969 as an intriguing place to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early research of nuclear development through today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology.
"Transforming the Human Spirit: From a Culture of Violence to a Culture of Peace” is a temporary exhibit on display beginning September 29, 2012, at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, 601 Eubank SE. The exhibit is a production of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a lay Buddhist movement of 12 million people around the world that promotes peace, culture and education through personal change and social contribution. The exhibit poses a number of ethical questions for the viewer to contemplate and asks the reader to imagine a world where the interconnectedness of humans across the globe is paramount and a peaceful world is possible. There is no additional cost, beyond the usual admission rates of $8 for adults and $7 for youth and seniors, to view the exhibit which will be on exhibit through October 28.
