You have an opportunity, right now, to help save an iconic piece of Oak Ridge and Manhattan Project history – the Flattop House. 

Since 2009, the Flattop House has been on exhibit at the American Museum of Science and Energy, better known as AMSE.  Very soon, AMSE will be in a new location where there is no space for the Flattop House.

Instead, the Flattop is moving to a new home on the grounds of the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge, located in an original, historic, Manhattan Project neighborhood, not too far from its original address. 
We need your help to make this happen!

At the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge, the Flattop House will be a permanent exhibit, teaching visitors about life during the Manhattan Project.  At just 576 square feet, the pre-fabricated Flattop is the original “Tiny House.” With just two bedrooms, a combination living-dining room, and one bath, this house and others like it housed young families whose hard work helped end the war.  

We need your help, right now, to Save the Flattop House. Your donation will help us pay for the move, for security fencing, and for work to get the house ready for visitors.

The Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization, and your gift is tax deductible.  

Donate today, and thank you for helping us Save the Flattop House!
