  • I was in Oak Ridge for work and had a few extra hours before my flight and found this museum. I'm so glad I did, it was great. The overall facility was pretty small butt there is tons of information t...  more »

  • Having been to Los Alamos twice, we knew that we wanted to stop in Oak Ridge to see how the city contributed to the Manhattan Project. It's probably not fair to compare it to the museum in Los Alamos,...  more »

  • Great set up, explained their part in the arms race. Great staff, lots of self movies and displays. I had no idea how important this place was. They had factual information and actual pieces for us to lookat, at sit on, and play with. Plenty of space for picnics. Clean restrooms. Fun and games for all ages.
  • This place is an awesome place to learn about science but it's a fun way to do it. It has a gift shop with very interesting stuff. There's thing there that are very challenging. The people they're are nice.
  • It is one building but has a free national park part and a paid local park part, with only a vague division of the two. The two seem to compete to see which can be less informative while expecting the other to take up the slack. Ask any question about anything, no matter how simple, and they they don't answer it, they just resent you interrupting their gossiping and daydreaming. It is a complete waste of time and money to come here.
  • Lots of info on the town and what they did here. Some of the displays could use updating and repairs but it was very nice. Entrance fee was very reasonable.
  • Took a good friend from Texas to see the historical exhibits. The volunteer staff were very friendly and helpful and the exhibits were very informative.
