Louisville Science Center
If you're looking for a rainy/snowy day activity, you might enjoy a trip to the Louisville science center (Kentucky Science Center) in downtown Louisville located at 727 West Main Street, Louisville, KY 40202. The science center is open daily throughout the year but closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Derby Day (Derby Day is treated as a holiday for many in Louisville!!). The science center opens at 9:30am and closes at 5pm most days (9pm on Fridays and Saturdays). The science center has a few standard exhibits as well as temporary exhibits. Kids will enjoy the gift shop and hands on activities. The Louisville science center also houses an IMAX movie with several rotating films. Tickets to both the science center and an IMAX film are currently $18 for adults and $16 for children 12 and under. You can also purchase a ticket to the science center alone or an IMAX film alone for a lower purchase price. If you'd like something to do on a Friday or Saturday night, tickets to the IMAX are only $5 after 5pm. You can even buy a dual membership to the Kentucky Science Center and The Louisville Zoo. The Science Center has several events during the year including a Thunder Over Louisville celebration, overnight adventures for school groups, after school programs, and programs for boy and girl scouts. The top floor of the science center houses a Riverview Room which is a rental venue for corporate parties and weddings.
