Mission Statement

As the official museum of science and energy of the United States, we build upon the impressive history of scientific advances in Oak Ridge to show the vital importance of science and engineering in our past, present and future, and to contribute to a deeper understanding of the STEAM disciplines.  The museum accomplishes this mission through exhibits, educational initiatives, public programs, a vibrant alliance with the United States Department of Energy, and other important partnerships around the world.
