This is a good place to visit in JC specially when you have little ones in tow. You should avoid coming in during events if you don't like the crowd because it gets really loud and busy with bus loads of children from camps and field trips. But it's in these times that there's more to do and see, and... More

This has a lot of hands on exhibits great for children. Two theaters offer various movies and on stage live shows which were very scientific.

Went with my 7 yr old son and 12 yr old daughter and we all enjoyed ourselves. It was nice, but wasn't the best we've been to. We are used to going to the museums in Philly and they are better (Natural Sciences and the Franklin). If you are going to go you should order tickets in advance to avoid... More

The Liberty Science Center did the trick - it was entertaining for our two energetic boys on a hot day. That said, it was pricey. The Touch Tunnel is really not worth waiting in line - it is something a fifth-grader can make in the backyard with the right materials. They also did not do a very good job keeping... More

Liberty science center is good for kids of all ages and even adults love it. It's very spacious. Staff is always willing to help and friendly. Parking is available. The store has things that range in price so all will be happy to leave with something.

Lots of hands on activities for younger children. For teens and adults there is science content but requires reading and focused attention to extract meanings. Great for bad weather, but gets lots of families on rainy Saturdays

Loved this place!!! Young ones had a blast in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exhibit! Older kiddos/adults enjoyed the sports/athletic section. Could easily spend 4 hours here. The Natural Parks Adventure show on IMAX was awesome too!

I was disappointed from the size of this place to the number and type of exhibits they have. I cannot recommend it to anyone I know...

The activities kept the kids engaged all afternoon which was fabulous and we have nothing but admiration for the science centre but the same cannot be said for the cafe. Two queues for sandwiches (hot and cold) is fine as is being told you are in the wrong queue. What isn't acceptable is when the American behind you has their... More
