Kentucky Science Center has a new membership level that will allow even more people to access Kentucky Science Center. It’s the new Community Access Membership! This membership provides a free family membership to families participating in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) or the Women Infants Children (WIC) supplemental nutrition program.

“Kentucky Science Center wants everyone to be able to Do Science with us,” said Mike Norman, Kentucky Science Center Chief Executive Officer. “Removing barriers to access offers everyone the promise of curiosity, creativity, and innovation.  Our goal is to inspire everyone to be a life-long learner, which leads to a better quality of life for all.”

The good news is: SNAP/WIC cards from any state will be accepted for the Community Access Membership.

How do you get this membership?

Download an application form from select community partners or grab one at the Science Center ticket desk. Then, fill out the forms and return your completed form to the Science Center in person with a valid SNAP/WIC card and photo ID at the time of membership activation. The SNAP/WIC recipient must be named on the membership.

What does it include? 

Membership for up to 2 adults and up to 4 children (or grandchildren) ages 2-18. Also, 2 one-time use passes for others. Membership benefits cover children living in the household.
