Opera 101 is performed by vocal artists from the distinguished Knoxville Opera Studio under the direction of Maestro Salesky. The program weaves through musical theater history by beginning with popular, English selections of 20th Century Broadway musicals and progressing towards great opera and operetta classics in foreign languages. The program concludes with a lively question and answer session, giving participants an opportunity to interact with the performers.

National Park Service Coming to CMOR
We are pleased to share that in October, the visitor center and offices of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park will be moving to CMOR. This will include a ranger station in the lobby and office space in the Museum’s Selma Shapiro Wing. This is an exciting opportunity for the Children’s Museum. We will keep you posted as this new partnership develops.


Thanks to the Tennessee Arts Commission for sponsoring our ARTogether “Wind up your Thinking Machine” this year. Campers read Eric Carle stories then created collages, clay pieces, paintings, and sun catchers to go along with each story. They also crafted a booklet and collected textures to add to their art work. 

Thank you again Tennessee Arts Commission for sponsoring 12 ARTogether projects at the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge. You have given at risk children a chance to create art and pass it on to their families and community. These projects promote creativity, flexible thinking, and enabled them to be innovative in writing, art performance, and music.
