PAMPA -- It is a piece of cold war history, and now you can see it right here in the panhandle.

It is the final B-53 nuclear bomb, and today, Pantex donated that to the Freedom Museum in Pampa.

Pantex employees took the bomb apart back in 2011.

The B-53 is the largest and most destructive weapon at that time.

Some people say the new addition will mean a lot.

Before taken apart, the nuclear bomb weighed close to 5 tons and was the size of a minivan.
