The Bradbury Science Museum is pleased to announce that Patrick Moore — a native of Los Alamos with several decades of public history experience, who has led at historic sites throughout New Mexico — will join the Bradbury in March as director

Moore has spent over 30 years in the history and culture sectors. He received his undergraduate and master’s degrees from New Mexico State University, where he studied political science and history, and he holds a doctorate in history from Arizona State University. His career includes work in research, historic interpretation and preservation at organizations including NASA, the National Park Service, the U.S. Navy and the Smithsonian Institution. Moore was also a professor of public history at the University of West Florida. Most recently, he served as the executive director of New Mexico Historic Sites and the chair of history and heritage for the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs.

“Patrick brings years of experience managing museums and a passion for Los Alamos to the position,” says Kathy Keith, director of the Laboratory’s Community Partnerships Office. “We welcome Patrick, a Los Alamos High School graduate, back home to tell the story of Los Alamos National Laboratory and its science to the public.” 

Operated by Los Alamos National Laboratory, the museum is named for its second director, Norris E. Bradbury, and its exhibits document the science of the Lab’s 80-year history from the Manhattan Project to advances in supercomputing, nuclear nonproliferation, biotechnology and climate science.
