The American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge will celebrate its 65th birthday on Wednesday, and the public is invited.
The birthday celebration starts at 2 p.m. in the AMSE lobby.
AMSE, originally named the American Museum of Atomic Energy, shares its birthday opening on March 19, 1949, with the gate opening of the 1940s Secret City of Oak Ridge and the birth of twin girls (Madeleine Leigh and Amanda Anne) to Bill and Audrey Tewes. On the 16th birthday of the Tewes twins, AMSE’s mechanical hands held their birthday cake. Madeleine Leigh will attend the AMSE 65th birthday. Bill Tewes, who came to Oak Ridge with the Special Engineer Detachment in the 1940s, has been a strong supporter of AMSE. [Read more…]
