There’s something new coming to the Kentucky Science Center. Dubbed “Uniquely Human,” the 6,000-sqft exhibit is the museum’s first new permanent exhibit since 2020.

It took more than four years to develop and features 20+ interactive experiences designed to help visitors discover connections between health and humanity.

Crafted specifically for guests ages 12 to 25, Uniquely Human places an emphasis on the importance of mental + emotional health. Part of the exhibit includes a “Mental Health Zone,” complete with a mood room, sand garden, and exercises to encourage people to consider their mental state and its connection to their physical health.

See the exhibit for yourself at its official grand opening and ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. next Thursday, June 29.
