New York Hall of Science presents 450 exhibits, demonstrations, workshops and participatory activities that explain science, technology, engineering, and math.

A visit to NYSCI is a hands-on, energetic educational experience where you can indulge your curiosity and nurture your creativity. NYSCI offers professional development for teachers, produces curricula and resources for classrooms, and studies how technology, gaming and play affect how we learn.

My whole family has been here many times. Great for all kids as it is a "hands on" place with lots of touching and learning going on. Bring lunch as there is a cafeteria. There is indoor and outdoor activities including a mini golf course which is lots of fun. They even have an area for toddlers to play. Recommend... More

The Hall of Science has both indoor and outdoor exhibits, and is constantly being updated. Most, if not all, activities are hands-on, and there is sufficient space for the visitors to spread out. I would recommend to bring your own lunch, as the cafeteria is tiny, and offers very limited fare. We are members, which gives us reciprocal membership at... More

What an incredible place for the whole family. The facility is mainly for children but parents will find themselves engaged as well. The young people who work at the Hall are great and help the even younger ones understand concepts of science and maths. The mini golf facility is great and re-emphasises some of the concepts learned. They have a... More

We had a wonderful time at the Hall of Science. I came here when I saw younger (25 years ago) and loved it. Though we have been in the area visiting the Queens Zoo and Flushing Meadows, we have never gone to the Hall of Science. I had the Friday on the weekend of Father's day weekend off and our... More

My 10 and 2 year olds both enjoyed the hands-on activities! There was enough variety to keep them entertained. Also the staff was very helpful explaining how some exhibits worked. We will be back!

The worlds greatest tennis players are here and it's a treat seeing them. Arthur Ashe Stadium is too big and isn't worth sitting in unless ur corporation has a box or u r loaded. The other courts are better for the plebeians.

This review is strictly for the current membership department. The museum itself is wonderful and membership with its reciprocity with other childrens/science museums makes the cost well worth it. However, this time around I am having severe issues with receiving my membership card. I paid my dues in February, and printed a temporary card with the confirmation email I received... More
