good place for a day trip with young kids

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... read more

Went on a Sunday in August. Parking was $7. The kids had a blast (boys aged 5 & 7). There are 4 floors with plenty to see and do. We even took them to the Bodies exhibit and they were so intrigued by what they saw. It was great for them to see the inside of the body, bones, muscles,... More

Daughters, Carole and Marcia planned the day for my Birthday. It had been many years since our last visit to the Liberty Science Center and we were not disappointed. The highlights for us were the "Bodies Revealed" exhibit, and "A Beautiful Planet",presented in the IMAX Dome Theater. The "Cotton Top Tamarins seemed curious of us as we were about them.... More

I went to the Liberty Science Center to see the Bodies exhibit, since it would be a lot less crowded that the Times Square version. Did not disappoint, as there was plenty of un-rushed time to read about each specimen. Our party spent a lot more time at the Science Center that we expected, since we stuck around for lunch...

It's been awhile since I last visited LSC. They've made a great many updates to the facility. There is a nice mix of tried and true exhibits, modifications on others and plenty of new fun too. Great time for a wide age range. From 4 or 5 years right on up. There is always sitting new and exciting to learn... More

My family and I love Liberty Science Center and we take our visitors here when they're in town, especially when they have young children. We always enjoy the traveling exhibits, which this summer is the "Bodies Revealed". My 4 y/o son actually was fascinated with the exhibit and was singing the "Skeleton Dance" song while I showed him the different... More

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
