Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls presents Race For Atomic Power, an ongoing exhibition.
Learn about the dramatic scientific and political adventure that occurred in Idaho’s own backyard including information about the first usable amounts of electricity produced by a nuclear reactor, the first city to be powered by nuclear energy, the birth of the nuclear navy, and many other important advances in nuclear power.
Funded in part by the Save America’s Treasure’s Program with matching funds from M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, Bechtel national, Bechtel BWXT-ID, Argonne National Lab, and others, the exhibits were developed by the Atomic Heritage Foundation under a cooperative agreement with the Department of Energy-Idaho. Academy Studios of Novato, CA designed and fabricated the museum exhibits.
