To our public guests:

The Living Arts & Science Center wants your visit to be as educational, enjoyable and fun as possible. During the week, the LASC hosts many schools for group field trips. This means that during the hours of 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Monday to Friday the LASC and our exhibits can be very busy, and often full of school kids and their chaperones.

If you are planning to visit during the week, afternoons may be a more ideal time for your family and friends. For groups of 6 or more, we suggest calling (859) 252-5222 in advance to ensure available space.
