  • Caught a deal for $5.00 admission. Wish we had more time to spend. Something for kids up to 12 i would say. Definitely a stop to make in Louisville Ky.  more »
  • I'm pretty sure I've reviewed this in the past but I wanted to update my past review. Because like all things, things change over time. And this place is still terrible. So, I supposed it didn't reall...  more »
  • 4 adults and one 6 year old really enjoyed this trip! Tons of hands on activities! Lots of room to move. Offset the price by going late and looking for groupons!  more »

  • I have visited several science museums, but I must admit this by far this has been the best. It has three floors of pure interaction and many employees in green vest to assist with any questions. It's a museum for all ages with many hours of fun. We also enjoyed a 3D movie of the Pacific. I highly recommend the Kentucky Science Museum.
  • I've loved this place since I was a kid! Now my son loves it and we have a membership! I don't think I could ever get tired of this place, there's so much to do and all of it is awesome :)
  • Interesting, but not what I expected. I brought my boys 9-11 and I feel it's geared more towards younger kids. There is a lot to do and experiments to try. They did have some fun, but we didn't stay long. I really think if the kids were younger, we would have had more fun.
  • It's a fun and educational place to take the kids. A lot of the exhibits are hands on and interactive to help with the enjoyment of the museum. The Louisville Slugger museum is very close as well if you want to make a day of things downtown.
  • Good demonstrations of physical science & a broad variety of hands-on stations on several floors. We also saw a wonderful, 3-D BBC Nature movie narrated by Sir Richard Attenborough about life in the forest as winter approaches - FABULOUS photography!

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
