Discovery Gallery highlights
- Polar Bears: Get a sense of the scale and power of the largest bear in the world! Two real, full-sized polar bears are poised to give guests an up-close and personal view of this beautiful, vulnerable species.
- Mummy: This authentic Egyptian mummy was exhibited at the World’s Fair in 1904 before being acquired by Kentucky Science Center. The mummy, Then-Hotep, has been dated to the late 25th to early 26th Dynasty (700-625 B.C.,) but the sarcophagus is nearly 3,500 years old.
- Gemini Trainer: Project Gemini, NASA’s second human spaceflight program, fell between projects Mercury and Apollo (1961-1966.) While our Gemini space capsule never left the ground, it helped many astronauts in the 1960s prepare for their space missions.
