Experience the Louisville Science Center – I remember when my parents took my siblings and me to science and Imax theater. I still go for the exhibits and my church organization visits when we have a summer program for the children in the community.
Hands-on exhibits and an IMAX theater make learning about math, science and technology fun. – Overview
This hands-on science and technology museum is paradise for young science buffs. The museum's interactive exhibits make exploring science, math and technology so enjoyable kids will hardly know they're learning.
Memorabilia from the space program is on display. "The World We Create" offers kids the chance to explore chemistry, computers and transportation systems. The "Body Watch Gallery" teaches kids about their anatomy with video games and exhibit galleries. Kentucky's largest indoor rock-climbing wall resides inside the center, so thrill-seekers can get their fill while smaller kids check out Kidzone. There's also an IMAX theater that shows educational films such as "Amazon" and "Dolphins." Temporary exhibits supplement the permanent collection. The on-site gift shop sells an array of toys that are as educational as they are interesting.
Not really for the under ten crowd! – I visited this past weekend with an almost 3 and almost 7 year old. Although my kids loved the KidZone area - an area with scheduled entrance times and a visit lasting only 45 minutes - the rest of the museum was over their heads. Some of the exhibits that would have been age appropriate didn't work. Overall it was just OK and I wish we had done the zoo instead but it is January! We'll visit Cincinnati's this weekend and report back.
LARGE SCREEN LARGE FUN – THE EXPERIENCE AT IMAX IN THE LOUISVILLE SCIENCE CENTER IS FIRST RATE FOR THE AREA IN THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE. THE SCREEN ITSELF AT THIS LOCATION IS FOUR STORIES HIGH! THE FILMS SHOWN ARE GREAT. ALL IN DOCUMENTARY STYLE VOICED BY SOME OF HOLLYWOOD'S HEAVYWEIGHTS (AND SOME NOT SO HEAVYWEIGHTS). AT IMAX GOING TO A MOVIE IS NOT JUST AN ENJOYABLE TIME, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE.
FAMILY FUN – My husband and I have taken our children there many of times. And we always learn something new. The kids love going there.
Education for the Whole family – Very nice science center. I enjoyed it thorughly. the end
Fun.... for about 3-4 hours? – Two friends and I went to this museum about a month ago and I must say, even though i am 15, i had a lot of fun for about 2 hours, and then after we saw about half of the museum it got very boring and kinda childish. i would give it ** out *****
