A must go if you are able to get your kids involved in interesting and fun science workshops plus presentations. A lot of different activities going on. Be patient and let your kids get involved. An entertainment learning experience.

What a wonderful way to spend a day with kids of any age. we started going when ours were toddlers & now that they are young teenagers it is still fun. The "value added" is there is always something to learn. after all, it is a "Science Center" not a museum. If you are looking for art or something political... More

In the skyscraper exhibit, there are a few references to the World Trade Center. There is an exhibit that discusses the "tragedy" that caused the collapse, and how the actual collapse occurred. This was not a tragedy, it was an ATTACK, as it was pre planned. The display seems to seek not to offend those aligned wit the terrorists, but... More

My grandsons were visiting and we decided to come here at the last minute because it was raining. Lots of hands on activities to keep everyone busy and happy! We had a hard time getting the boys to leave at the end of the day!

We purchased a great Groupon deal for Liberty Science Center, but we still still had to pay $36 extra when we got there to watch the IMAX Dome movie called "Mysteries of the unknown", worth the extra money as it was a great film for everyone. We also got complimentary passes to watch the Lightening show, I would have skipped... More

Anyone who's into science centers has to visit this one. Firstly, we're military and we got in for free; this is ALWAYS a plus and we really appreciate this! But it would have been money well spent....the lightning show was absolutely phenomenal. It just started July 4th and it was fun, educational, and the presenter stayed after the show and... More

Plan on staying 5-6 hours because the young minds won't want to leave this place with all it's hands-on things to do. Enjoy watching your children light up with every new room they walk into and everything they can experience. Camp trips were at this facility but when you think about all these kids getting to experience this, you're okay... More

Took my 7 year old step-son here last week due to the possibility of rain. Thought it would be a fun indoor activity. For the very expensive price of admission, I would have expected better. Almost half of the activities weren't working properly or at all. Not something I would recommend for smaller kids. The exhibits here are a bit... More

Liberty Science is a beautiful facility with outstanding views of the Statue of Liberty and NYC Skyline. It’s very easy to find from the NJ Turnpike as well. While there is a parking charge, spaces were ample on the day we went since it was not too crowded (during July 4th week) & most of the spots have some shade... More

My kids spent the entire day at the Science Centre on a Friday and I must say they kept asking for more. My daughter spent some interesting time: - being a surgeon and conducting a mock surgery - feeding animals and fish - science experiments - watching a live rocket blast experiment - rockclimbing and more... Totally worth all what... More
