A score can be exported via FileSave As... to several different formats:

Compressed MuseScore format (*.mscz)
MSCZ is the standard MuseScore file format and recommended for most uses. A score saved in this format will not loose any information. The format is a ZIP-compressed version of .msc files.
MuseScore format (*.mscx)
MSCX is the uncompressed version of the MuseScore file format used in version 0.9.5 or later. A score saved in this format will not loose any information and is recommended if you need to manually edit the file format using a text editor. Previous versions of MuseScore used the MSC file extension. However MSC has file extension conflicts on Microsoft Windows and is blocked by some email providers. The new MSCX file extension supersedes the old MSC file extension due to the problems outlined above.
MusicXML (*.xml)
MusicXML is the universal standard for sheet music and can be used by most of the currently available scorewriters including Sibelius, Finale, and more than 100 others. It is the recommended format for sharing your sheet music between different scorewriters.
Compressed MusicXML (*.mxl)
Compressed MusicXML creates smaller files than regular MusicXML. Compressed MusicXML is a newer standard and not as widely supported by other scorewriters at this time.
MIDI (*.mid)
Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) is a format widely supported by sequencers and music notation software. However MIDI files are designed for playback not score layout so they do not contain information about formatting, pitch spelling, voicing, ornaments, articulations, repeats, or key signatures, among other things. To share files between different music notation software use MusicXML. If all you care about is playback then use MIDI.
PDF (*.pdf)
Portable Document Format (PDF) is ideal for sharing your sheet music with others who do not need to edit the music. Most computer users already have a PDF viewer on their computer so they will not need to install any extra software to see your score.
PostScript (*.ps)
PostScript (PS) is popular as a page description language used in printing.
PNG (*.png)
Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a bitmap image format with native support on all major operating systems and image software and popular on the web. As of version 0.9.3 Multi-page scores export a PNG file for every page.
SVG (*.svg)
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) can be opened by most web browsers (expect Internet Explorer) and most vector graphics software. However most SVG software does not support embedded fonts so the appropriate MuseScore fonts must be install to view these files correctly.
LilyPond (*.ly)
LilyPond format can be opened by the Lilypond scrorewriter . However LilyPond export is incomplete and experimental in the current versions of MuseScore.
WAV Audio (*.wav)
WAV (Waveform Audio Format) is an uncompressed sound format developed by Microsoft and IBM but widely supported by software for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. This is an ideal format for creating CDs since no sound quality is lost in the process of saving the file. However the large file sizes make it difficult to share via email or the web. This export option is available in version 0.9.5 or later.
FLAC Audio (*.flac)
Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is compressed audio format. FLAC files are approximately half the size of uncompressed audio and just as good quality. Windows and Mac OS do not have built-in support for FLAC but software such as VLC media player can play FLAC files on any operating system. This export option is available in version 0.9.5 or later.
Ogg Vorbis (*.ogg)
Ogg Vorbis is intended as a patent-free replacement for the popular MP3 audio format. Like MP3, Ogg Vorbis files are relatively small (often a tenth of uncompressed audio) but some sound quality is lost. Windows and Mac OS do not have built-in support for Ogg Vorbis. However software such as VLC media player and Firefox 3.5 or later can play Ogg files on any operating system. This export option is available in version 0.9.5 or later.
