Get Involved

The Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation (NTSHF), which operates and maintains the National Atomic Testing Museum (NATM), is a Nevada non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation. We do not receive funding from the government or the Smithsonian and therefore rely on donations from people just like you. With your help, our cultural, educational, and scientific programs will continue to benefit thousands of area students. Please mail in your completed donation form or make a donation online and contribute today!
