Kids must enjoy the NY SCI for all the fun and sciencific wonders. Yet, I was there for the show. Given this is the only place where the show in on that I can get to from Manhattan without taking a train, I don't have many choices. Yet, this place turns out to be fun, even for an aged adult...

The New York Hall of Science is in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. Consequently you really need to set aside the whole day for your visit to get the full use of your admission. Also, the walk between the subway and the Hall is a little ‘undesirable’ in my opinion, with no street signs to direct you. My advice... More

I really don't like children. Sorry to all the doting parents out there, but no, not my choice! However, my husband really wanted to take me here and I agreed, knowing full well that it would be full of summer camp brats. I went fully armed with my stern lady face. And yes, it was full of summer camp children... More

Although somewhat inconvenient to public transportation, the train ride was worth it. Activities galore for kids of a variety of ages.

Had a very enjoyable day with the family. Visited with 5 children ranging in age from 8-13 and they all had an enjoyable day. Interesting exhibits and interactive displays. Something for everyone to enjoy. Was disappointed that some areas such as the treehouse, were closed to the kids, for no apparent reason. It clearly wasn't a mechanical issue. We were... More

A nice attraction on the grounds of Flushing Meadow Park. Interactive exhibits, gets the kids thinking about science, while they're having fun at the same time. Very good way to spend the day with your family, and after that you can always stroll the park grounds and take them for a ride on the carousel there.

This is a great way to get your kids thinking without them thinking they are thinking, follow? It's a nice way to spend an afternoon. They especially enjoyed the mini golf even though they initially didn't want to play. They really wanted to do the playground but it had rained while we were inside and the playground had to be...

My family and I visited on 6/28 for Brickfest, a lego day. This part was great, well organized, plenty to do for my kids and they has access to all of the other parts of the Hall of Science. They had a great time, until it was time to eat. We went to the cafeteria to order lunch. After waiting... More

We travelled nearly 90 minutes to get there with great expectations. Unfortunately the exhibits are very tired and dated and the whole building could be doing with a significant overhaul. All of which could be forgiven but for the fact that it was filthy! The exhibits, concourse areas and everything in between needed thoroughly cleaned. We visited first thing in... More
