Kentucky Science Center

Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center has a rich history, from its founding as a cabinet of curiosities in the Public Library System of Kentucky in 1871 to its current status as the region’s leading resource for informal science education. Boasting at one time little more than an Egyptian mummy and a 16,000 piece mineral collection, the Kentucky Science Center is now the largest hands-on science center in Kentucky, with three floors of interactive exhibits and experiences, a four-story theater, teaching laboratories, educational programs and distance learning capabilities. In 2002, the Louisville Science Center was designated the State Science Center of Kentucky by the Kentucky General Assembly. This new designation signified the meaningful history and demonstrated connection that the Science Center had established over many years with constituents and stakeholders from across the Commonwealth and the region. On September 1, 2012, the Science Center’s name officially changed to the Kentucky Science Center. The new Kentucky Science Center name underscored the Science Center’s active work to provide informal science, technology, engineering and math education to all citizens across the Commonwealth. The Kentucky Science Center features interactive exhibits and engaging programs for children, families and adults – reaching all audiences through its mission to DO SCIENCE in ways that are engaging, educational and entertaining to inspire a lifetime of learning.
