Tips for Families

Get there early as it tends to get crowded and don't forget, they let you bring your own food/beverages so pack your lunch and save some $$

I hadn't been to LSC since I was in the 3rd grade so when my friend asked if I wanted to accompany him this past weekend I couldn't resist! A quick ride on the PATH train (okay not so quick - it was ~25 minutes to Grove St and you will need to transfer to another train afterwards) and I was there! LSC was renovated some time ago (at which point they closed the infamous Touch Tunnel! *tears*, so the place looks great!) We started off at the new Skyscraper: Achievement and Impact exhibit where I was forced to "Walk the Steel" - Walking on a narrow steel beam about 30 feet above the gallery floor of Skyscraper.  There is no net, just a quick harness. I was legit terrified and it did not help that the 2 kids in ...

I'm 22, and for the "older" crowd.. I thought this place was pretty neat. I liked the fact that you got to play around with everything while learning at the same time. Four floors of fun and facts! And if you have younger kids, they're not going to want to learn much.. just mainly play with the cool stuf...

A great interactive center for adults and kids. The exhibits are interactive so you can touch play pull etc.Teens would be bored and would not appreciate the experience. The Imax theater has various shows for your choosing. It looks like a planetarium, which is really cool. Teens would enjoy this. The rooftop deck allows you to go see the fabulous NYC skyli...

The museum is fantastic.   Unfortunately when you go with your kids and it coincides with all the class trips and camp day trips - what a horror!    The children are not monitored and they cut in ...

When I was here a few years ago, they had so many more interesting demos or experiments for the kids.  They need to add different things to do and see.  I do LOVE the Dome IMAX.  I would go ther...

Memories of visiting "the science place" as a kid are better than the reality of coming here as an adult, but Liberty Science Center still rocks.  There are a lot of interactive exhibits to get your nerd on, as well as some interesting natural habitat and wildlife up on the top floor.  Make your way around the various levels with a view down into the vestibule below. Bring kids with you to heighten the joy at discovering something new, but avoid holiday weekends such as President's Day or any weekend where all the kids have off from school Monday and need something in the area to do!  That "something" will become "getting in your way" and "screaming at the top of their lungs for no reason" and you don't want...

A nice educational place take a family, but if you are young professional that's into museums, be expected to finish the exhibits and IMAX show in 2-3 hours. This is not a place you would take your time around like a museum in Manhattan. I st...

Liked it. Came here with a groupon, had no issues. Got there a little past 11AM on a Saturday and it was practically empty. It started to fill up later in the day but still wasn't packed at all. There were absolutely no lines and no crowds for anything. IMAX dome was cool, same exact IMAX dome as the science center in Boston. Felt like a big...
