Kentucky Science Center

The Kentucky Science Center  has long been a favorite with families throughout the area, but now even more attractions are making it the place to be for family fun. We talked to Mark Sieckman from the Kentucky Science Center to get some more information about what great new things it has going on for kids.

The Kentucky Science Center, which has a history with families going back to the 1980s (when the always-popular Kid Zone opened), has a special, temporary exhibit especially for younger children that are 3 to 7 years of age. “The biggest attraction right now is...
...Science In Play. It’s a brand new customized exhibit, built specifically for the Science Center,” Seickman says. The exhibit focuses on “learning themes of science through the lens of play,” Seickman says. He continues by telling us how Science In Play allows kids to experience science in a hands-on way by “experimenting and testing, knocking things over, and putting them back together.”

Science In Play will be at the Science Center through January 2013.  To make sure kids of all ages can enjoy the Science In Play exhibit, the Science Center is putting on free play dates inside the exhibit from 8:30 to 9:30AM on the first Tuesday of every month, for kids aged 0-4 and their parents.

Other attractions that are great for families include the IMAX movie “Born to be Wild” and the affordable monthly Play Pass, which for $20 gets you unlimited weekday access for one adult and up to four children, ages 7 and under. It is available through January 2013.  So get your family together and head to the Kentucky Science center, where you can have fun together, learn something new, and enjoy attractions for all ages!
