Was here for the World Maker Faire in September 2014. It was a great event at a really interesting location. Tons of interesting exhibits and the organizers [which had to include NYH of S staff] did an amazing job.

Attended Maker Faire in Sept 2014, this was a top notch event for ages 3-100 Well worth price of admission, really need 2 days to see everything. If your child is not into science or building things, this fair will change that WIIFI and an app while onsite enhanced the whole experience Parking at Citifield was well run, as line... More

Was here for the World Maker Faire, but saw enough of the NY Hall of Science to share that it is well worth your time and energy to visit as a family.

We went to this museum on a rainy day with a 5 year old and 3 year old. It made for a fun day, and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Many exhibits are interactive and any of those have a neat twist on things seen at other science museums. They have a whole area... More

This was a fun excursion...we visited 50 years from the date of hosting the World's Fair. It wasn't as busy as I thought it should have been, but who cares about science anyway? (joking!)

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
