Places to Go to Find Indoor Fun - Louisville, Kentucky

Indoor Fun for All Ages

By Tammy Gnagy-Publisher, Macaroni Kid Louisville East January 6, 2024

Ah, winter. The holidays, the beautiful snow, the excitement of the new year, the gray skies, freezing temperatures, extra days off from school, and you still have kiddos that want to run, jump and have a good time! Where to go? What to do? Here is a list of all the indoor fun Louisville has to offer for all ages of kiddos! You have probably seen a lot of them listed in our Activity Calendar. Not a lot of new places that I haven't mentioned before, but I thought it would be an easy list to have for reference. I have tried to list them all. If I have missed something please email me at
