I've been bringing my grandson to the Hall of Science since he was about three (the same for his mother and her siblings when they were little), and now he's going into third grade. Now I'm bringing his little brothers too. There are lots of exhibits to choose from, so they don't get bored. Some things keep them busy for... More

This is good sized science museum on not too crowded on weekend day we visited. There weren't any summer camps that day. They have a range of hands on science including a new design lab, where our kids spent that afternoon designing a way off a deserted island. A number of permanent exhibits were temporarily under repair but NY HoS... More

This is a good place for young children through early teens. There is an interesting science playground with water features (extra charge of $4 per person). The exhibits inside are interesting and clever and interactive. The negative to me was that the place was a bit overrun by camps clogging up the more popular exhibits. Also the coverage by staff...

My child was invited there for a birthday party. It was great. They learned things and were able to participate in chemical adventures. At first I thought that is nerdy but we all had a really great time. I am sure it is also informative and worth a visit with kids if you are not going to a party there.

Went here with my girlfriend and it is really nice. I didn't think it was a place for a casual date but interestingly enough, it is not that bad. There are many things to do and learn about. The only down side is that you might end up being among a group of kids but if kids are not an... More

This museum is very good for lively and enquiring minds of all ages. But the problem is that you just cannot enjoy it due to the HUGE numbers of 'summer camp' kids who arrive in droves!! Now don't misunderstand me, I'm all for 'hands on' educational trips, but this is something else!! There were 15 school buses parked up as... More

I loved it; so did my kids the only thing is that I came in with a member shild which is not cheap and had to pay for the outside play area and it $20. And the mini golf is another $20 so having a membership didn't really help. But thest part was the smiles the boys had. Might do... More

We visited the Hall in hopes of seeing the Grand Hall, but it is under renovation for the opening of a 50th Anniversary of the 1964 World's Fair exhibits. We will definitely return to visit that beautiful space. The science museum was fabulous. Lots of school children were there discovering all kinds of science. It was wonderful watching the kids...

We decided to make the journey out to Queens as it got a good review in the Rough Guide to New York. Long way out and #7 train then went express so we missed the stop and had to go out the station under the track and cross the road to get back to the right platform - pain! The... More
