We had actually taken my daughter to a Birthday party hosted at the Science Center, it was pretty fun and neat for the kids. Great learning experiences. The staff was so good with the kids as well.

I see stars!!

The East Kentucky Science Center/Planetarium is a family friend, school, or church group meeting place! It's clean, spacious, and, informational. The children enjoy watching the sky, especially, when they show the sky on the day they were born! This place has a lot of activities for all ages! I would highly recommend this for everyone!

Not very often you find a planetarium and laser show in a smaller town. The building is beautiful, the science part has a few interesting exhibits, it's the show that most come to see. The gentleman in charge was very informative and made the show interesting.

Worth the visit
Feb 2015 • Friends
Had a great time with music from Led Zeppelin playing to the star formations and laser show. Gentleman doing the tour was great
to tell information regarding the Planetarium . this is located on the campus of the local college , do not drive around looking for
a separate location. Is a nice ,educational place that was enjoyed by my group.
