This museum helps educate visitors about the history of the World War ll Manhattan Project, technology, science and energy.

After being established in 1949, the museum was originally called the "American Museum of Atomic Energy."  The museum built a new building in 1975 at a new location. Years later, in 2018, the museum found its new home at its current location at 115 East Main Street, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. It was downsized to 18,000 square feet. It is open daily, and its hours are Tuesday - Saturday from 9 am - 5 pm, and Sunday - Monday from 1 pm - 5 pm.

This science museum is designed to teach children and adults all about energy and nuclear power through engaging exhibits and quality programs.
