The trick to visiting with young children, particularly in the summer, is to arrive at or very close to opening. You'll be able to get a prime parking location and have the museum virtually to yourself for the first couple of hours. Use this time to take advantage to the larger exhibits before they get crowded (on our most recent... More

A wonderful space dedicated to peeling the mystery from some fascinating topics: weather, gravity, sound... Tons of fun activities for kids, educational exhibits and a fantastic IMAX theater (movie watching there is a must) that is the best in the area all make for a great place to visit. If the weather is nice, I would suggest taking in the... More

Best place for young families to explore and learn together. Multiple exhibits, different ages, scientific excitement indoors and out. Even have monkeys, fish and reptiles. Very hands on exhibits, that as parents we want to participate in as well. We spend many a Saturday here and we even love the healthful cafeteria! Everything about the science center is awesome.... Except... More

My 5 year olds and I visit about every 2 months, with our season pass which is totally worth it. There's always something new to see so we don't get bored. My girls just became tall enough to do the Infinity Climber last week and that was great and got lots of their energy out. You should also try the... More

Undoubtedly one of the finest science museums in the world, Liberty is worth a special trip, which we did with our eleven year old grandson. Wonderful exhibits and activities. No matter what a child's attention span and energy level, Liberty is great.

My 6 year old and I enjoyed the whale movie in the dome theater, it is such an unbelievable experience to see a documentary on such a giant screen. The music, BEST DAY OF MY LIFE, is still my son's favorite song of 2015 :) There so many other things to do and run around and discover and learn ...... More

I hadn't been to the LSC for years. We decided to visit because we were bored one day. It was a great decision. Plenty of things to see and do for all ages.

Great place to bring kids on those cold winter days or when it's raining ( I hate being inside when it's nice out ) . Def more suitable for kids 2 to 10 but there is something for everybody. We watched the animal presentation , kids got to touch snake, turtle and a iguana. My daughter (3 ) loved everything.... More

Went with the kids. A bit boring for the adults, but the kids seemed to really like it. It can get a bit crowded.
