The World Around Us

The World Around Us

Natural and earth sciences come to life! Explore ecology and ecosystems, biological diversity, and natural selection and adaptation through three galleries: “atmosphere – the air that surrounds us,” “terrasphere – environments that support us,” and “aquasphere – the water that sustains us.”


Inside The World Around Us

  • Weather Watch: Step inside Weather Watch to become a WLKY meteorologist, working to keep Kentuckiana informed of severe weather emergencies. Create your own weather forecast and watch the broadcast in real time.
  • Go H2O: Water is a powerful force and essential to sustaining life! At Go H2O, get a sense of how water moves and interacts with the landscape. You control the direction of the water, while processes like erosion, sedimentation, and flooding impact what you set in motion.
  • Cave Crawl: Kentucky is home to the biggest known cave system on Earth! Get ready, get set, and spelunk in the Cave Crawl, a part of our “terrasphere,” where you can learn what makes (and what lives in) a cave.
