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

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

When we were stranded near LaGuardia for a few days we were looking for something to do that was close to our hotel. The NY Hall of Science fit the bill for a Sunday afternoon. It was very enjoyable and informative. We did watch the 3D movie about The Flight of the Monarchs. That was particularly enjoyable. It would be... More

The Hall of Science elightened my daughters and I with the bonding experience of sharing science. It was a good day for all.

The NY Hall of Sceince has been a staple in our annual US visit, my children (and their mother & I) really can't wait to visit every year, more than once if we can. It is always exciting to visit, there are the old fixtures: Moon dust, how the earth was formed, the oceans, how to put molecules together to... More
