The Kentucky Science Center is a community science center in ‘Museum Row’ in the West Main District of downtown Louisville. Previously known as the Louisville Museum of Natural History & Science and then the Louisville Science Center, the Kentucky Science Center now attracts more than 500,000 visitors a year.
Housed in a limestone building that was originally built in 1878 as a dry goods warehouse, the Center moved into the building in 1977 after being purchased by the City and subsequently won numerous design and preservation awards for its distinctive cast-iron façade.
