    Chaperoned my son's kindergarten field trip to the children's museum. This is a cute little local children's museum with a lot of interesting things to see and do. Admission also includes the Manhattan project museum which I found quite interesting. All in all this is a fun little trip if you're looking for something inexpensive to do.

    Entertaining for kids but definitely showing its age. The building dates back to the 1940s and was a school back then. Plenty for kids to engage with but more play than learn--not that that's a bad thing. The colocation with the Manhattan Project National Historical Park visitor center (TN) adds an extra level of interest for history buffs. Even so, while interesting, it's nothing to write home about. Picky's Recommendation: If nice outside, enjoy the sunshine and visit here on a rainy day (which is what we did).

    Very unique children's museum! It is housed in an old elementary school and they use the school room layout brilliantly to house different-themed rooms. There are some nice sections on the Oak Ridge National Lab's Manhattan Project contribution (which is what brought us to the museum to begin with). Our favorite section was the Appalachian heritage displays and the model train.

    This is one of my favorite places in Oak Ridge, and personally, I think it’s a better children’s museum than the Knoxville one, even though it’s a little dated. It has so many different rooms to explore and because it’s part history museum, it can entertain children of all ages, as well as adults. It also has a really cute playground right next to it. You could easily spend an entire afternoon here.

    Great place for kids but also for adults. A lot of Info about the science, nature in general but also a lot of pictures and exhibits from Oak Ridge history and Manhattan Project. But best ist the model train exhibit :-)
