Grandsons loved the rocket ship, trains, water table, puppet room, and outdoor playground/picnic area. Allow full morning or afternoon to enjoy the experience.

Thank you for offering the groupon discount. We were members the previous year and due to budget issues were not going to renew again. However, the generous discount with groupon made it possible for us to renew again and we greatly appreciate it.

I loved the museum, I took a 6 year old and he usually has a low attention span, but he loved it also and didn't want to leave but we were meeting someone to go ice skating, he would have stayed much longer had we had time, I'm so glad I bought the Groupon and it was such a good deal.

From Our Editors

Founded in 1973 as a Girl Scout project, the Children's Museum of Oak Ridge first opened inside Jefferson Junior High School with little more than 2,000 square feet of rented space to its name. After a meteoric rise in popularity, the museum moved to its current 54,000-square-foot facility, which brims with more than 20 educational and interactive exhibits designed to help children learn and grow.

Kids and parents can explore a simulated Amazonian rainforest, which reverberates with jungle sounds in air thick and heavy with moisture from the running waterfall. Little tykes become little tycoons in the World of Trains, which features a full-size Norfolk Southern caboose and a hands-on playroom where kids adopt the role of conductor, steering tiny locomotives and apologizing to their peers when their toy train doesn?t arrive on schedule. Otherwise, they can educate themselves on the history of playthings with some of the most impressive and entertaining gizmos from the museum's collection in the Century of Toys exhibit. Static exhibits aren't all the venue has to offer; the staff often organizes events such as performances by storytellers and controlled playtime with live monkeys.
