A #3dprinted #ShelbyCobra + award wining microphotographs + air conditioning = winning combo for the weekend.
Buy a Board on the Boardwalk. With the support of the AMSE Foundation, AMSE continues to sell boards on the boardwalk that leads to our flattop house. All money is used to maintain and preserve the flattop for future generations.

Great piece on ManhattanProjectNHP from Saving Places. We especially like that part about "a hidden gem of a museum." http://bit.ly/29V0J2m
Manhattan Project National Historical Park preserves the classified sites and complex legacy of the dawn of the Atomic Age.

I Just moved to Knoxville and I never knew the importance of this area. I learned so much about energy and the war. I took my 6 year old here and he had a blast. It's not all that geared for small children there are some interactive games here for its mostly a walk through type of museum. My son is nerdy and likes this kind of museum. It is a very nice well put together museum. Not sure if they do this often but they had these shows in the auditorium and electrical demonstrations of what Tesla was researching and interactive demonstrations. This is a must if your in the area.i would recommend this museum and would attend again.

My 80 year old father-in-law, my husband and I went to this museum on Saturday, April 16. The exhibits are great but the customer service around the gift shop was HORRIBLE. I went earlier in our visit because gift shops are my favorite part of museums for souvenirs. The Gift shop was open and I was in there for what had to be 15 plus minutes with NO STAFF. I waited to purchase my items, then finally had to go to the information desk to ask for someone to ring up my items. The woman behind information desk got a call and ended up handing the call off to who, I found out after, was the gift shop clerk... apparently she didn't think she had anything to do. I had actually passed this girl on my way to the info desk and she was with a group of boys. So then I had to wait for her to get off the phone to ring up my items. But wait, it doesn't end there. I purchase my items and rejoin my family. We are at the other end of the museum when suddenly 20 minutes before the museum is supposed to close they give a PA announcement that the gift shop will be closing in THREE MINUTES. So my 80-year-old father-in-law wanted to visit the gift shop so he (remember he's EIGHTY-YEARS-OLD) rushes to make it to the gift shop. We make it and we try to quickly look around and some young guy in a dress shirt and tie yells out when I'm standing right in front of him "WRAP IT UP AND GET OUT!" By the way, this was at 4:45 pm. 15 minutes before the museum was supposed to close. We drove for more than FOUR HOURS to ONLY visit your museum. There was nothing else on our agenda to visit in the area but after this experience, I can see why your parking lot was almost completely empty for a Saturday. People like gift shops and it's a big customer experience for museum visitors, but apparently customer service/ museum visitor experience is NOT a priority there.

I have been to AMSE several times with my family and with a large group from STEM camp. It is a nice building with lots of informative displays and plenty of things to keep kids engaged. If you child is in 3rd grade or above they should enjoy it.

This is such an exciting museum. It's keeps the history of America, and more of its part, in WW2. It would be a huge upset if a greedy Real Estate company takes its property for Mall purposes and it closes down.
