SRS Legacy

The Savannah River Site Museum is dedicated to bringing the stories of Savannah River Site, its scientific and technological role in the Cold War, to life.

During the Cold War, SRS (known then as the Savannah River Plant) operated as a nuclear materials production facility, producing tritium and plutonium for the hydrogen bomb. 

Savannah River Plant was essential to the national security of the country and served as the primary producer of nation's tritium.

In addition to providing national defense and deterrence, the nuclear plant produced innovative research in all fields of science, from chemistry to ecology.

You cannot talk about the 20th century history of South Carolina without talking about the Savannah River Site. Our visitors connect with their community, family, and history through the exhibits found at the SRS Museum.
