It's got my support! Who knows how WWII would have ended without the Manhattan Project?

Is There Really A 2 Billion-Year-Old Nuclear Reactor In Africa?
An ancient nuclear reactor that was churning away 2 billion years ago sounds like a fabricated myth. Maybe it's because the term reactor implies a manmade structure. Instead, the reactor is a region of natural uranium within the Earth's crust, found in Okla, Gabon. Uranium is naturally radioactive, and the conditions in this rocky area happened to be just right to cook up some nuclear reactions.

Over the years the politically correct crowd has diminished and almost destroyed the nuclear weapons exhibit which is the reason this museum is here to begin with. Almost rewriting history instead of telling it like it is they are apologizing for it. If you can get past that nauseating misrepresentation and enjoy the science for what it is this is a great place to spend the afternoon. If you are looking for military and cold war history you will be disappointed.

Good for a few hours of fun and learning. There is lots of information about the founding of Oak Ridge and the Manhattan project, but my favorite was the collection of puzzles on the round tables in the lobby.

Not worth the trip off the interstate to this unfriendly town.

Although a lot of the museum is dated, they do frequently have revolving exhibits to keep things fresh. Even the "old" things are still pretty entertaining, especially to kids. I do recommend making time to go to one of the presentations that they do in the auditorium several times a day. The staff are very knowledgeable and kid-friendly. Adults: go for the history. Kids: Go for the cool activities and hands-on experience.

My family meet up here, a few of them had been before. According to them the quality of the exhibits went down. Having not been here before there was little I would have enjoyed had it not been for my family. The staff was wonderful however. Many exhibits I went to didn't function properly, ranging from simple quizzes to a robotic hand. There presentation was solid. If your in Oakridge I'd recommend it for some fun, don't come for it though.

There are very few places in East Tennessee where one can be educated and entertained at the same time. This is one of those places.
