I'm not sure if it was permanent, but there was an awesome H. Edgerton exhibit at the MIT Museum I remember visiting roughly six years ago. (he developed the camera that took this photo).

If you're in Boston and it's still there, definitely go check it out.

I don't think there is a current Edgerton exhibit at the MIT Museum although there may be some photos. Strobe Alley (fourth floor of Building 4) does however have a permanent exhibit of photographs and some other things.

(For others, the context here is that in addition to his work photographing and filming nuclear explosions, Edgerton also developed the electronic strobe along with developing lots of other interesting things, and going on Jacques Cousteau expeditions. (Also a wonderful teacher and person.)
