Although a lot of the museum is dated, they do frequently have revolving exhibits to keep things fresh. Even the "old" things are still pretty entertaining, especially to kids. I do recommend making time to go to one of the presentations that they do in the auditorium several times a day. The staff are very knowledgeable and kid-friendly. Adults: go for the history. Kids: Go for the cool activities and hands-on experience.

My family meet up here, a few of them had been before. According to them the quality of the exhibits went down. Having not been here before there was little I would have enjoyed had it not been for my family. The staff was wonderful however. Many exhibits I went to didn't function properly, ranging from simple quizzes to a robotic hand. There presentation was solid. If your in Oakridge I'd recommend it for some fun, don't come for it though.

Good for a few hours of fun and learning. There is lots of information about the founding of Oak Ridge and the Manhattan project, but my favorite was the collection of puzzles on the round tables in the lobby.

There are very few places in East Tennessee where one can be educated and entertained at the same time. This is one of those places.

I was very interested in the parts on the history of the land and the facilities, but there were several exhibits that as of January 2010 were very out of date. One was about the Cassini probe, and was written as it not having been launched yet. The probe had launched 12 years before my visit and achieved orbit around Saturn for about 5 years. There was another exhibit about nuclear waste disposal and the Yucca Mountain facility to be in operation by 2010, but which apparently is no longer considered a possible site. There were also some exhibits with broken buttons, lights, etc. The docent was very knowledgeable however.
