Kentucky Science Center is proud to offer programming for families of children with special needs. Our Sensory-Friendly No Limits Family Nights are offered in the evening- after our doors close to the public with limited capacity which means lots of space to explore and take a break if you wish. We also turn down or soften tones, dim lights in various spaces, and offer noise cancelling headphones and sensory kits available for checkout. Communication boards are also provided at all activity stations if needed.
If you or a member of your party feels overwhelmed at any point during your visit, please feel free to visit our ticket desk or gift shop to check out one of our sensory bags, which include noise-cancelling headphones, stress balls, sensory bottles, and more.
