PAMPA, TX -- A piece of Cold War history is now on display at a museum in the Texas Panhandle.

Pantex has donated a B-53 nuclear bomb to the Freedom Museum in Pampa. Employees took the bomb apart back in 2011. The B-53 was the largest and most destructive weapon at that time.

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