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.

NYSCI was founded at the 1964-65 World's Fair and has evolved into New York's center for interactive science, serving a half million students, teachers, and families each year.

Decent museum, lots to see

Some of the exhibits are complicated for younger kids. But there was a lot to do and it was a good place to go for a few hours on a hot day.

This museum proves science can be a lot of fun and entertaining for children of all ages, as well as adults.The real bonus is the knowledge you gain of the world around you. I took my grandchildren, 2 1/2 and 4 years of age. They were both enthralled with the many exhibits they were able to interact with. There are... More

Teens and grownup have chance to get in touch the scientific world by experiments, vedio, pictures and watching movies. The... More

We have a family membership and go regularly. There are always new fun hands-on activities appropriate for all ages. My kids have a blast and don't realize how much they're learning at the same time.

This sciencemuseum is good, but as a family it is annoying that there are so much groups visiting. Children running, screaming and crawling anywhere between is not tedious during exploring.

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

My girls loved the exhibits and the workshop in the basement. We have been to many science museum, this one stands out to be well organized, clean and user friendly. Shame we could not venture out to try the playground as it was very hot today. Only minor criticism would be the cafeteria. Not a lot of choices, pizza, chicken... 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
