I visited this place with my toddler and although most of the exhibitions are for school going kids, he had a great time in Kids construction (play area ). He spent almost 2 hrs and still wanted to spend more. The Live animal show is good. You get to see animals that you don't see commonly in zoos. The best... More

I go frequently with my grandchildren (9 and 2) and they both have a wonderful time. It is just wonderful to see children enjoying science. Also, the cafeteria has the best food for an attraction that I have ever had.

Liberty Science Center is an amazing place. Took 2 seperate trips with GrandKids and everyone had a great time. There's something for all ages. On the first trip we purchased a Family membership. As far as I'm concerned it was a terrific investment. Get there early because you will spend more time there then you think. Took two trips to... More

We've been going to Liberty Science Center for years. It's big enough to keep kids of all ages interested and they consistently change their exhibits so there's always something new and interesting to see. The resident exhibits remain interesting and there's even IMAX. You can easily enjoy an entire day there and it's well worth an annual membership.

Great place for adults & kids alike. Liberty Science Center is located in Liberty State Park on the waterfront with fantastic views of the Manhatta. skyline. The center has many inter active displays & many hands on displays for the kids.

Right off the NJ Turnpike, is this HUGE, four story building, replete with science exhibitions. Great for kids, and adults as well! Most exhibits are "hands on." We were there with an 11 and 5 year old. Both were captivated (often by different parts of the same exhibit), Three hours shot by, and the place closed at 5:30PM. Great view... More

We arrived late morning and had to leave abruptly at closing (maybe even before closing) there was a wedding scheduled that day. It was a great time until we were approached and told you need to leave....weird. If you can, pack a lunch and snacks. I don't know if you are allowed to leave and come back in on the... More
