The Revolutionary Tools Exhibit is located at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering in Irvine, Ca. The building was made possible by a gift to the National Academies by Dr. Beckman and Mabel, and a donation of the land by his friend, Donald Bren (Irvine Company).

This exhibit shares about Dr. Beckman's life, his inventions, and the impact that he had on all of us.
