“Liquid Lounge Evenings for 21+”

Connecticut Science Center

Every once in a while, the science center is open late for adults only. They call in Liquid Lounge. All of the exhibits are open, each floor has a different band/DJ, and drinks are for sale. It's a fun and different way to explore science and get to know new people.

I brought a 5 year old and an 8 year old and the exhibits just did not engage them. The Kidspace was out because they felt the were "too old". For The Exploring Space and Pictures of Health they were probably too young. The view of Hartford from the Roof Garden is only for adults as they have a wall that permits only taller people to see.
The Cafe was fine and included some healthy food as well as traditional fast food. The building is beautiful and there is ample parking. I think that the Center should make an agreement with the garage that parking is free for museum attendees. It quickly becomes an expensive outing.

The CT Science Center is a relatively new attraction. It is centrally located in Hartford with access by several major roads (84,91, 2) from all directions. Parking is plentiful but very expensive in the garage.
I went about 10-12 months ago with my 8yr old neice and 10 yr old nephew. I think I enjoyed the exhibits as much (or maybe even more) as they did. There are many interactive activities. There is something to interest everyone -sports, nutrition, space, physics, live animals (snakes, frogs, fish). A big hit was getting their pictures on the cover of a sports magazine which was emailed to you and you could print out copies.
We did not go to the 3 D movie because it cost extra.
The main detraction for this attraction was the cost. Anyone planning to go more than once should consider a membership. Or plan ahead and save up. With a couple of kids and adults it could easily run over $100 - $150 (admission, parking). Also, it might be included in the Bank of America first weekend of the month free admission to museum's promotion.
However, as an educational activity that is interesting to adults and children it is certainly worth at least one visit.

Something for everyone. They have a great website to help orient you to current exhibits. A favorite for my grandkids: the water exploration center.

We went to the CT Science Center to see the dinosaur exhibit and to watch the 3D film on pterosaurs. The movie was well done, entertaining and informative. The temporary dinosaur exhibit was also fun with animatronic dinosaurs roaring all about. All of the permanent exhibits have plenty of hands on action to keep you occupied. Sure to be something of interest for everyone. Recommended!
