The Oak Ridge History Museum

The Oak Ridge History Museum shines a light on the “human side” of the Manhattan Project, focusing on history and people’s day-to-day lives during World War II in Oak Ridge.

The Oak Ridge History Museum received over 100 items from the former American Museum of Science & Energy building on Tulane Ave., including a timeline of Oak Ridge’s history, a model of the United Church, Chapel on the Hill, and displays about the founding of Oak Ridge. The museum also received an exhibit on Lt. Gen. Leslie Groves from the Atomic Heritage Foundation. In addition to these and other items from the museum’s collection, the museum showcases historical artifacts from private collections and contains the largest collection of original Ed Westcott photography available.
