The Louisville Zoo is now KultureCity Sensory Inclusive™ Certified to promote an accommodating, positive experience for all guests with a sensory issue who visit the Zoo!

With this in mind, the Louisville Zoo has partnered with KultureCity and are now certified and equipped with special tools to help better serve our guests with sensory needs.

The sensory initiative allows individuals with sensory processing needs the ability to see and experience all the world has to offer, without being overwhelmed by everything going on around them. Special signage has been placed around the Zoo to identify noisy and quiet areas and sensory bags are available for checkout at no cost to the individuals and/or families visiting the Zoo.
