Our policy for class registrations:
Payment in full is required to register your child for a class/camp/workshop. Class/camp/workshop fees are fully refundable up until fourteen days before the start date. Refunds will not be given for absences or “no-shows.”

We reserve the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment. Fees for classes cancelled by the museum will be fully refundable.

Our winter snow policy follows that of the Oak Ridge School System: if Oak Ridge schools are closed for a snow emergency, the museum is closed and classes are cancelled. If museum classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, they will be made up or rescheduled. The safety of our visitors is our primary concern.

For registration information, see the links to the left in the green sidebar.
