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

Me and my husbands are both science geeks and loved our visit to this place. We got there around 2:30 pm and were a bit worried that we wouldn't be able to cover all the floors. 3 hours is enough time to see all the exhibits and watch an IMAX show. This place is heaven for kids though! A lot... More

This museum is worth the trip from the city. It has multiple levels and is very interactive. Even if you don't love pure science, you will find things of interest here. It's great for kids up adults.

We love zoos and science centers, and have visited many. This is one of the larger ones we've visited. Prime material for 6 and up years, but the preschooler enjoyed Clifford, the new Electricity show, and the maze crawl in the dark, plus the for-little-ones-only activity room on the first floor. Yes, lots of (desirable) hands-on activities means lots of... More

It's obviously geared toward children, but there are plenty of interesting and interactive things to do. The IMAX is intense the shows fascinating documentaries and sometimes showcasing a blockbuster film.

Our second time at LSC, we spent 6 hours here. My son (6) especially loves the 3rd floor because of the bubble machine and the mock endoscopy. We caught two shows: the Lemurs of Madagascar - shown on the incredible IMAX dome and the Tesla lightning show. The cafeteria is central king located for a nice lunch and snacks. This... More

Liberty Science Center is in the heart of Jersey City (aka not so nice of an area) the center is very large with 4 floors. I would say it is for the 7 and up crowd. My child 10 enjoyed it very much. It is crowded with lots of campers in the summer- however after 230 pm they all cleared... More
