The liberty science center is a whole day of fun. The imax theater is awesome. The cafe food is terrible and expensive. Plus we got gifts from gift shop and when we got home 2 out of 4 gifts were broken in the box. I called and i basically got a too bad its not our fault. They acted like... More

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...

I'm a member and love that this museum has something for everyone. The "Rice Room" (as my kids call it) is for 2-5 year olds and has tactile exhibits (a huge bin of rice with measuring cups and bowls that the kids can play with), pulley systems with plastic balls that shoot up into the air, snakes and turtles inside...

I went there once before, many years ago, and it was more enjoyable when I wasn't greeted by a metal detector at the door. The security guard justified it by saying that there are children there, but there are also children at other science centers I have been to, and none of them has a metal detector. (If a nut...

What a variety of exhibits -- most of which involve the kids! From the Rubiks Cube to Guitars to NJ shoreline to their signature Walk in the Air -- so much fun. My daughter has made me promise to take her back there.

Nice place to hang around on a cold day. Most exhibits are activity based so keeps the kids occupied. The Imax show on penguin was great as well. Wonderful views of new York skyline from the science centre

Took our four year old grandson there on a rainy day--it was generally quite good--but the exhibits are varied and not all are suited to younger children and not all are suited to older children, which is actually good. There are many hands-on type exhibits, but less pure science than I had expected. There are a number of live performances... More
