My favorite part of exploring around Oak Ridge was visiting this museum and interacting with all the exhibits! There’s lots of information here which I recommend taking at least an hour or so to go through all the exhibits the museum has to offer! I learned so much here and I would definitely visit here again! I really enjoyed it a lot!
Really interesting museum about the nuclear history and impact Oak Ridge had on the war effort and Manhattan project. I loved the fact there were so many artifacts from the time. Very engaging and I ended up spending longer here than I thought I would! Highly recommend if you're interested in history, or Manhattan project.
A fascinating historical museum Containing the history of one of the most well kept secrets in America K-25 during the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge Tennessee. At the height of it's construction over 25,000 workers helped with the built When completed in 1944 it was the largest building in the world. The museum contains articles and amazing artifacts of the history of K-25. Parking is free admission is free. If Jerry one of the guides is there he can provide some amazing history.. Google maps can take you there just west of Oak Ridge Tennessee.
Fascinating museum on this bit of the nation's nuclear history. The front desk staff was energetic and very helpful. Definitely recommend doing the scavenger hunt to keep your "security clearance card" as a souvenir. Speaking of the card, that was one of the most ingenious gimmicks I've seen a museum use to increase immersion in the history!
