Rotating Exhibit

Throughout the year, the REACH Museum showcases rotating exhibits in the Hoch Gallery, highlighting themes of agriculture, history, heritage, and science relevant to our time.

Our next featured exhibit will be focused on Immigrants of the Manhattan Project, and will open on Friday, January 10, 2020!

In the decade leading up to World War II, there was an active persecution of religious minorities and political opponents. As a result, numerous leading scientists, philosophers, and academics fled to the West. Many of the refugees became naturalized U.S. citizens and some joined the Manhattan Project. The large number of immigrants working on the Manhattan Project gave the American nuclear program an international character unusual in such a top-secret endeavor. There is no question that the new U.S. citizens played a vital role in the development and completion of the Project.
