It’s time for a big birthday party. April 22 marks the 110th anniversary of the birth of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, and the Los Alamos Historical Museum is hosting a daylong birthday party to celebrate.
The museum, 1050 Bathtub Row (just north of Fuller Lodge), will have free cupcakes available while supplies last. Oppenheimer biographies, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning “American Prometheus,” will be 20 percent off regular price.
In addition, Los Alamos visitors and residents alike can pick up coupons at the museum for $1 off Oppenheimer martinis and 10 percent off specially prepared Oppenheimer meals at the Manhattan Project Restaurant (formerly Dixie Girl).
Coupons will only be available in the museum and are only valid on April 22.
The restaurant will display Manhattan Project-era pictures from the museum and have some Oppenheimer “trivia” available, as well.
Oppenheimer, scientific director of the Manhattan Project and a “founding father” of Los Alamos, was born in 1904 in New York. He visited New Mexico as a young man, and his love for the area helped him convince Gen. Leslie Groves, military director of the project, that it would be a good place for a remote, top-secret laboratory during World War II.
