About the Museum
Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge is a unique and educational resource, providing children of East Tennessee with the opportunity to learn while playing-to create, discover, solve, and experience, within non-traditional, interactive exhibit galleries. We bring teachers, parents, caregivers, and children together in an educational environment where classroom learning is supplemented, imaginations are kindled, and learning opportunities in the arts, sciences, and history abound.
The Children’s Museum is a dynamic cultural center that features innovative exhibitions, programs and workshops for all ages. Science, art and history are emphasized in hands-on learning opportunities that encourage young people to understand their cultural heritage, environment and the world around them. Educators are encouraged to utilize the Museum’s numerous resources -over 20,000 objects, archival holdings, audio/video tapes, books and magazines.
