Last May, I not knowing anything about the museum, took my granddaughter for a couple of hours. I had to physically carry her out the door, kicking and screaming. Her last visit here, I let her stay as long as she wanted and she wanted to go back another day. Next visit, we’ll be returning.
My children love visiting this museum! The staff is always friendly and helpful, the bathrooms are clean and good parking. We always plan to stay a few hours when we go. We pack a lunch and make a whole day of it. We really enjoy it!!!

About Children's Museum of Oak Ridge
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.
Children 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 children 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.
