The Owensboro Museum of Science and History offers a wide range of educational programming to school groups and other organizations. Our programming is aligned with Kentucky and Indiana’s core curricula.

From the exciting historic Coal Mine Gallery to the hands-on ENCOUNTER or the Government Gallery, we have programs that will excite, entertain and educate. Diversity programs, leadership institutes, student forums, and history and science-based activities are just a few of the wonderful educational programs we offer at the Owensboro Museum. To conserve your resources, you can also plan to visit the RiverPark Center or the International Bluegrass Music Museum on the same day. Both are located within a half block of the Museum. For more information, contact us or call 270-687-2732 and ask for Kathy Olson.
