Fantastic Day Out!

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.

A great place to let the grand kids explore. It's amazing to see them interact with the docents and do experiments. You never can get bored here.

It was surprisingly easy to access from Manhattan using the PATH and Light Railway. Great range of interactive exhibits, explanations and things to do for all the family. It did get busy with school groups but that was to be expected because of the time of year we visited. We expected to spend about two hours max. but actually stayed... More

I love the Imax shows here. They start every hour, just past the hour. You can go to the shows without paying admission. This is a lively museum with lots going on, like the Robotics competition, and sleepover parties for kids.

We went before a trip to the Statue of Liberty, having heard of the tremendous hands-on exhibits for years. The parking lot was almost empty...then we looked to the bus lot where there seemed to be acres of buses. From the moment we got in the building, it felt like we were caught inside a scream. There was just too... More

This is a nice place to take your children and grandchildren (from 3 to 14 years) as the exhibits are hands on so children can learn. It is fairly easy to get to in Jersey City. You can also get a good view of the statue of Liberty which is nearby on an island. The visit will last about 1... More

This is a treat for any ages. There's also a Imax theater there. Well worth a visit. I brought the kids there and enjoyed my time as much as they did.

For a pleasant and easy day trip to New Jersey, take the PATH train or a ferry to Hoboken, directly across the Hudson from the West Village and Chelsea. After you've checked out the amazing train terminal and the park nearby, with spectacular views of Manhattan, take the light rail nearby to the Liberty Science Center. There's always something of...
