Nice museum. Great exhibits. I was there during the Secret City Festival so it was packed. Worth visiting.

This was a pretty cool history of Oak Ridge. It has some in depth stuff about the work performed there. Tons of stuff to do especially for kids, but several of the props are busted. It may even have too much going on. It's a really good price and would definitely go again. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

Most exhibitions are outdated (aka satellite launch is planned for 1997) and not very well organized. Some of the movies are good but your English needs to be decent to enjoy that. The laboratory tour is only open to US citizens.

Lots of fun things for kids to play with. Went for the physics week events. Very handicap accessible and friendly

Maybe sure you fully explore the upstairs, seems like there is something new around every corner. Valuable information gets buried in the long written displays.

This place is fascinating, it has lots to learn about science and the history of the area. My husband and I loved it, and our 10 year old lived it. Our 2 year old got a little bored. Cannot beat the price!!!!!!!

I Just moved to Knoxville and I never knew the importance of this area. I learned so much about energy and the war. I took my 6 year old here and he had a blast. It's not all that geared for small children there are some interactive games here for its mostly a walk through type of museum. My son is nerdy and likes this kind of museum. It is a very nice well put together museum. Not sure if they do this often but they had these shows in the auditorium and electrical demonstrations of what Tesla was researching and interactive demonstrations. This is a must if your in the area.i would recommend this museum and would attend again.
