Good attraction but

Well worth the visit even with a 14 year old. Very long check-in because it was between Xmas & New Years.

I remember going here when I was a child during our school field trips. I recently went with my young cousins (elementary age) and they LOVED it. Just be cautious the touch tunnel, loved by many, can be scary for some young children as it's really dark.

Entry for 4 (2 adults + 2 kids) was over $115 (w/out Imax film) + pay parking. Long entry queue. Bathrooms are accessible only after you've paid entry fee (i.e. not while waiting on the queue). Lockers are available for coats but no change machine - forcing you back onto the queue for change. Forget it... We brought a 7... More

The Liberty Science Center is beautiful and very convenient to the NJ Turnpike. The exhibits are geared more to younger museum-goers than the exhibits at the Franklin Institute (which I go to a few times a year). A few, like the animals and skyscrapers, are nice for teen and adult patrons. Many are more for children. Views of Manhattan are... More

It's been over 20 years since my last visit to Libero Science Center and I'm so glad I was able to experience it again my sister. My sister and I completed all exhibits, info sessions, and activities from the 4th floor on down. I highly recommend LSC for your aspiring Scientist and Artist.

This was my second visit, having taken my grandson here back in 2011. He enjoyed it then so I thought it was a safe bet for visit number two. The ticket price seems to have gone up dramatically. And said grandson is a few years older and harder to please! He's the sort of 6 year old who really needs... More

My wife and I really went to see the Titanic Artifacts which were really impressive and well done.To think that there were personal items of persons who perished over 100 years ago,bought up from the ocean floor. The rest of the center was somewhat interesting,but more geared for younger ones with interactive displays.We enjoyed the Imax presentation on caves,the Skyscraper... More

We went as a class trip, so unfortunately they did not give us enough time to really see everything. This is a really fantastic place from the journey inside of a heart to the rock wall climbing, you won't be disappointed. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable.

This place is so fun and wondrous! I went there as a kid and now I bring my nephew there, and every trip is better than the last!
