This ultra modern attraction can make any kid happy, it doesn't matter if they are 2 years old or teenagers. You can have a full experience there, including an amazing 360o. movie theater.

Excellent science centre with plenty of "hands on" experiments for the kids to have a go with and to keep their interest up. There is a cafe, but it gets very busy with lots of folk walking around with trays of food and drink. Can take a while if you are dodging from one food area to another

I went with my daughter and grandchildren and had an incredible time. We didn't have enough time to see the entire facility as we kept stopping to play along the way in various areas. It was fun for the adults as well as the kids. This is definitely something we must do again next time they come to visit.

We have been members for the past two years and my son is only 2 and s half ! Lots of actives and room for my toddler to run around on a rainy day. For $100 membership and unlimited use it is well worth it. They also change their exhibits quite often.

The Liberty Science Center is situated in Liberty State Park. While the museum provides a variety of activities, exhibits, and IMAX quality movies, the park provides some wonderful experiences. It is walking distance from ferries to the Statue of Liberty. There is the old railroad which was the last stop between the rest of the United States west of the... More

Today we took our 10 year old grandson to this entertainment center cum science center. The 3 D film was engaging. I wish we had had time for the I MAx film. Some exhibits we liked better than others. Some were more commercial in their appeal. It was overpriced in that for parking, admission for 2 seniors and one child... More

I've been here so many times as a teacher. While the science exhibits don't change that frequently they seem to hold the attention of the under 10 crowd. Best to go on a weekday and don't forget to get your thrill by visiting the touch tunnel. It's a crowd pleaser.
