  • A fantastic museum that I will definitely be visiting again soon! For the short amount of time I was here I knew that this museum is top-notch. Diving into the history of the secret city (you'll find out about that when you visit) this absolutely amazing museum shows what life was like in Oak Ridge during the days of the Manhattan project. I loved my time here and like I said cannot wait to visit again!
  • My grandfather used to bring me here as a small child, now I bring my child here. Lots to look at and it's educational. We love the space shuttle at the WWII lookout tower. He son loves the toy room with the playhouse. My only complain is the water room. Ugh, at least put rain jacket in thete for the kids. Kids love to play in water, but their parents hate it.
  • My wife is always looking for new creative things to do with my toddler during the day. So when she told me she was going to try the Oak Ridge children’s museum we both had hesitations as it’s a little further drive than anything else in town, so we hoped it’d be worth it. I’ll tell you what my baby boy had a great time! They had a great variety of things to do, and he stayed busy for the better part of two hours! For a two-year-old that’s pretty good LOL I believe it was fairly priced, I wouldn’t hesitate to make the drive up to Oak Ridge to check this place out. They also have a large outdoor playground for the nicer days!
  • Best children's museum I've been too. Lots of interesting history. Learning centers & play areas to explore. We saw the Holiday Express. An amazing miniature train set up in the whole Gym. Christmas trees, lights, lots of little villages, beautiful water feature that made the whole experience life like....and lets not forget all the trains! My grandson & I lost ourselves & track of time being there.
  • This place is amazing, they're so loving and kind and if you have any questions there right there to help you, and if you live within a couple miles of the museum then your entrance is free. We live .3 miles away and we loved it and so did our son at 2 years old
