  • Love it. Ticket is $5 (children and students) which is so cheap for what they have to offer. Make sure to watch the documentary film about the Manhattan project (45 mins). The film has made a great impact on my child. She wants to be a scientist now...to contribute to save/change the world. It's an amazing visit. The museum is clean, well maintained with friendly staff and volunteers. It takes about at least 2-3 hours for a thorough visit (allow kids to play with some interactive games, and solve brain puzzles)
  • What a neat place. We went at 5:00 in the afternoon and there were no crowds. It was very interesting, but a lot to absorb. The history of Oak Ridge is fascinating. As far as its history going forward, was surprised to learn how much Oak Ridge is doing to research and develop renewable energy.
