Preservation

The SRS Museum is dedicated to the preservation of the fascinating history of the Savannah River Site.  The Museum was established to preserve and interpret the technical and scientific achievements, social impacts and ecological accomplishments at the SRS.  This is a continuing effort to search for documentation, photographs, stories, items, interpretations and examination of the historical significance of Site contributions during the Atomic Age and beyond.

Clips of these stories are available at the Savannah River Site Museum.

Videos

"Displaced. . .the Unexpected Fallout of the Cold War" recognizes the sacrifices made by the displaced residents and honors their contributions to national security with nostalgia, history, humor, and grief.  Displaced is available for sale in the Museum gift shop.

A 30-minute educational edition of the video was made available to local middle schools. It was used in 8th grade Social Studies classes where the Cold War and South Carolina history are taught.
