Activity Overview

Don't miss Kentucky's largest, interactive science center which contains three floors of exhibits, educational displays, laboratories, and a four-story theater. One can learn scientific facts in an entertaining manner by visiting the museum's four major areas described below.

The World We Create exhibit allows the visitor a window into various scientific disciplines such as chemistry, physics, engineering, telecommunications and manufacturing.

KidZone brings the outside world down to the scale of a 2-7 year old with many hands-on, interactive displays.

Through the World Around Us exhibit's three ecological galleries - Atmosphere: The Air That Surrounds Us, Terrasphere: Environments That Support Us, and Aquasphere: The Water That Sustains Us - visitors reflect on the ways in which all forms of life are connected.

Learn about the human body and good health through the many displays found in the center's World Within Us.

Things to Do

  • In the KidZone, young ones can explore a child-size airplane, ambulance, bus, lunar module and construction zone and also experiment with water flow using pipes and tubing.
