The American Museum of Science and Energy (AMSE) will hold a grand opening event on Thursday, Oct. 18, to welcome visitors to its new location at Main Street Oak Ridge.
The new 18,000-square-foot space includes a newly-designed exhibit gallery featuring state-of-the-art interactive exhibits and hands-on activities, as well as a lecture hall and classroom facilities.
“AMSE is planning a multi-phase opening to ensure a smooth transition and quality experience for museum staff, stakeholders, and the public,” the release stated. On Oct. 1, AMSE will open to the public on a limited schedule, Monday through Friday from 9am – 5pm (closed weekends). This leads up to ASME’s grand opening event on Thursday, Oct. 18. Full, public operating hours will resume after the grand opening.
