Great if you have small children.

Took my two boys (9 and 13 there). The older one enjoyed it, although I think any older and he would not have. Lots of different things to do and learn about. They were a little... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2015 NEW via mobile

It was just ok kind of a place. It's more for young kids, there was a lot of people with strollers. I have a 5 & 8 years old, if you're getting the family membership $140 for family of 4, they have free visits to other museums but it has to be outside of the 90-mile radius. That's not 90mile...

Took my two boys (9 and 13 there). The older one enjoyed it, although I think any older and he would not have. Lots of different things to do and learn about. They were a little underwhelmed by the Infinity Climber, although the younger one wanted to go back. Were greatly impressed, as was I (really I was gob-smacked), seeing... More

I haven't been to the science center since it closed for the new renovations. When I walked in to the FRONT of the building for the first time, it was a bit different. As a little kid walking up the side stairs made the anticipation much more fun and exciting to run up the stairs to the exhibition. Now that... More

Spent nearly a full day here, myself, a teenager, three young children. We all had a terrific time, and only wished the place didn't close so early as we all felt like there wasn't near enough time to see and do everything we wanted to. The price was pretty high - about $135 for the 5 of us, but that... More

Liberty Science Center has four floors with hundreds of hands-on exhibits in twelve galleries. Your General Admissions ticket includes free extras such as live science demonstrations, hands-on labs, and a variety of daily activities. Some of our favorite exhibits were Skyscraper, Lightning Show, Infinity Climber, Communication, and Beyond Rubik's Cube. We also saw an informative 3D movie at their IMAX... More

We took our goddaughters there early on sunday morning. It was great, no lines, we zipped through everything. It seems there is enough interactive things to do for kids of any age. If they had even more physical activities it would be even better. They must have gone through the touch tunnel ten times.

I have visited the science center for years. My favorite is the IMAX theater. The exhibits within the center are at times age specific.

We go here once every couple months, generally on the first weekend of the month since it's free for BOA customers. Parking is $7. My 3 year old daughter loves it, and there's a lot of interactive exhibits for her to interact with. It constantly changes, and there's always something new for her to do there. They do a great...
