CMOR is gearing up for its biggest fundraiser-and event-of the year, the annual Gala. Support the museum and have a blast at the beach with a little STEAM mixed in.

Gala tickets are $125 per person or $800 for a table of eight (a discount of $200). The Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge is an entertainment venue. To comply with new legislation enacted on 11-12-21, we ask that Gala guests voluntarily provide one of the following: proof of a negative COVID-19 test no more than 48 hours before the event, proof of COVID-19 antibodies, or proof of vaccination. Your ticket confirmation will include information about how to provide this, either before the Gala or at check-in.
