The Collector’s Show – Collecting the Cold War

This week on The Collectors Show we talk about collecting artifacts from The Cold War and Area 51 with Karen Green. Karen is the Senior Curator and Director of exhibits at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada. The National Atomic Testing Museum is a repository for one of the most comprehensive collections of nuclear history. As part of its mission, the National Atomic Testing Museum seeks to collect and preserve a wide variety of materials and artifacts relating to atomic testing, the Nevada Test Site, the Cold War, and nuclear and radiological science and technology. The current collection includes thousands of rare photographs, videos, artifacts, scientific and nuclear reports and data and one-of-a kind scientist collections. We also hear news about what celebrities like Angelina Jolie collect (it’s knives and daggers).
