It has fabulous exhibits and an interesting miniature golf course. Also there is a pre-school room. Well worth the trip.

Family of 3 generations took a trip here and it is always a pleasure to bring the grandchildren again and again. As they age, they move up to different adventures. This trip there was a new space - to build structures out of sticks and rubber bands. Loads of fun and lots of laughs when it fell down. There is... More

Our hotel was close to NYSCI so We decided to pay a visit to this museum of science. Our teen-ager was a little bit too old to enjoy everything but We had fun with some science experiments on perception, the robots movies in 3D was awesome and the mini golf was very fun. Try to avoid the many kids visiting... More

My husband and I came here during Open House weekend. After my visit I do feel that it is aimed more at children or a younger audience but we still enjoyed having a play on everything. As a kid I would have loved a place like this! If you have children you are onto a winner bringing them here. There... More

My son is almost 12 and he was worried he would be the oldest kid there. Once inside, he didn't even care. He had a great time. And so did I. He ran around and played with everything while I tried to get him to read the information cards. Lots of interesting facts and short videos. They changed up the... More

If you are an adult New York Hall of Science is rather kid-oriented, I wouldn't recommend it. It is definitely a kid place, especially kids 6-11. if you live in the vicinity and it is easier for you to get there than to Liberty Science Center in Jersey City NJ, than it is worth to go there. it is not...

Before I comment on Hall Of Science, I want to comment on TripAdvisor's new app. Ever since I downloaded this app, I am unable to see all the pictures in my phone album. Therefore, I am not able to share some nice pictures. The two pictures I am showing are rather dull. The Hall of Science is good for both... More

NYSCI occupies an old Worlds Fair pavilion and has been there as long as I can remember. It was a school trip destination when I was a kid in the 70s and early 80s and subsequently I have taken my nieces and nephews there as well as my own child. Unfortunately, I must agree with others here. The exhibits are... More

Science museum inside Meadows Flushing Park. The day we visited was a bit rainy so we could not enjoy the park, only the museum. It is a very nice place to take your kids, several interesting things to see and do.

Thank Nancy O
