“Over the last year, Kentucky Science Center has seen an explosion of interest in our flagship location and the outreach we provide throughout the region,” says Kentucky Science Center Chief Executive Office Mike Norman. “Our boundless reach enabled us to impact 100% of Kentucky counties and 97% of Indiana counties in 2022 with our unique blend of science education and workforce development programming. With your support, we look to increase the breadth and depth of that impact in the years ahead.”

Kentucky Science Center has a rich history in the state of Kentucky. The organization was originally founded in 1871 as a loosely organized group of specimens in the state’s Public Library System. What began as little more than a mineral collection transformed over the next century and a half into a 50,000 square foot flagship facility on Louisville’s Museum Row. As the State Science Center of Kentucky, Kentucky Science Center serves 325,000 visitors annually through exhibitions, educational programming, and events that nurture science literacy and lifelong learning.

Kentucky Science Center is located at 727 W. Main Street on Louisville’s historic Museum Row and is open to the public seven days a week from 9:30AM to 5:00PM. Our 50,000 square feet of space allows families plenty of opportunity to explore, experiment, and Do Science. Secure your general admission tickets by visiting
