One of the better sciences I have been to globally. Very interactive for children and covers lots of different aspects. Skyscraper exhibition is a favorite. IMAX dome experiences are worth it. If busting with young children, have them sign up for the experiments on the 3 and 4 th floor where they can pretend to be scientists. A very enjoyable... More

We went with a family of 4 for the first time. It cost us about $120. In my opinion it was fun, but not worth the $. You're better off going to the Queens Hall of Science which is far less cheaper.

We took the kids here to spend a cold day and were not disappointed at all. We wished that we had gone earlier so that we could have seen lots more and spent lots of time there. From the entry point, where we stood in line - the kids had fun interacting with an iguana and the fancy architecture blocks... More

We have a family membership to the LSC and we visit at least once a month. The LSC has so much to do that sometimes it hard to cover all 4 floors. There are things to do and see for all ages. My 2 year old loves the toddler room which is for children 0-5. The imax movies are amazing!... More

I was surprised the way this places teaches various science concepts to the kids. The iMAX experience at this place was a cherry on top. Highly recommended for people with young kids

This place is great for young kids. But expensive unless you get a family one year membership which is great since you can go anytime. Only problem is that you have to it $7 for Parking every time . You can also try to get a discount by going to some local libraries. We found one at the new providence... More

We went to the Liberty Science Center on a weekend. The parking lot was only half full, and still the place was quite crowded, but still ok. I think if the parking lot is full, then it's probably best to avoid going. I would say children ages 3 and up will have a good time at the LSC, but kids... More
