Spent nearly a full day here, myself, a teenager, three young children. We all had a terrific time, and only wished the place didn't close so early as we all felt like there wasn't near enough time to see and do everything we wanted to. The price was pretty high - about $135 for the 5 of us, but that... More

Liberty Science Center has four floors with hundreds of hands-on exhibits in twelve galleries. Your General Admissions ticket includes free extras such as live science demonstrations, hands-on labs, and a variety of daily activities. Some of our favorite exhibits were Skyscraper, Lightning Show, Infinity Climber, Communication, and Beyond Rubik's Cube. We also saw an informative 3D movie at their IMAX... More

We took our goddaughters there early on sunday morning. It was great, no lines, we zipped through everything. It seems there is enough interactive things to do for kids of any age. If they had even more physical activities it would be even better. They must have gone through the touch tunnel ten times.

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.
