Event Details

The Manhattan Project National Historical Park will present a program on Friday, July 13, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. (ET) at the Turnpike Gatehouse in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The program will give visitors some insight to what life was like in Oak Ridge during the Manhattan Project with all the security, the need for secrecy, and the worry of spies. This program is free and open to the public; parking is limited, so please try to carpool if possible.

The Gatehouse is located just past the intersection of Oak Ridge Turnpike and Westover Drive in Oak Ridge. Visitors can access the Turnpike Gatehouse from Oak Ridge by following the Oak Ridge Turnpike west as if you are leaving town. Parking will be next to the Gatehouse. For more information, visit the National Park desk in the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge.
