Where are we going today?

Learning CAN be fun, and kids realize this when they head to the New York Hall of Science!

This hands-on museum has over 450 interactive exhibits that kids can experiment with, touch, play with, and marvel at. Each of the exhibits teach them something new, but they might not realize it because they are having so much fun! Isn't that one of the best ways to learn?

The New York Hall of Science is dedicated to teaching kids the STEM subjects - science, tech, engineering and math. Kids can indulge their curiosity, nurture their creativity, and with half a million families visiting each year, that's a lot of fun that's been had!

Each of the exhibits have their own theme, and offer something new.

Kids can enjoy the 100,000 sq feet of indoor exhibit space, or the 60,000 sq feet of the great outdoors with the Science Playground and Rocket Park! Here, they get to have a close up view of the Atlas and Titan rockets, play until their hearts content, AND try out the 9 hole mini golf course!

Inside, kids can look at sustainability within our cities, design something really inventive, learn how sight works, explore the priciples of motion, and even see how math has impacted the world!

For those little ones in the family, Preschool Place is designed JUST for them! This protected area is where those younger creative minds can experience multi-sensory activities, which will help their development. 

With family workshops too, the New York Hall of Science really is a place where the whole family can have fun and learn together!

Learning really IS fun in New York State!

    If it wasn't for the Maker Faire festival I would of missed my opportunity to go to the museum. I was fortunate to see the museum and also watch the fair. Wow. The museum is extremely fun. Kids would love to learn science after they come over here. If you are interested in listening to speakers the museum has a auditorium. The sound is loud and clear and the seats are comfortable.

    Pro- there is parking

    Con- lines can be long, lunch at the museum is not the best.

    Why not spend a day with science? Adults turn into kids and kids into scientists. Something to discover for anyone. This is a hands on museum with so much to do and see, you will need a whole day. What I loved about this place is that the exhibits are actually working, well kept and clean. There is a cafe and a museum shop of course. The penny crushers were out of service. Outdoors you find even more interactive activities including a mini golf course.

    A well kept secret, easily reachable by subway to Flushing. I took my grandson, aged 8, there the other day. I was delighted by the amount of information disseminated by video and other means and particularly liked how many participatory exhibits they had to illustrate various scientific facts and to keep young children entertained. We finished by going downstairs to the Happy City crafts place
    and making things out of paper, with add on little lights, which my grandson thought
    would make the city a happier place. There is also a really difficult...Read More

    I expected it to me more adult. It's for little kids. Very little kids. They have a lot of stuff there but most of it is interesting only for kindergartners or 1st-2nd graders. I'm 25 i love science, so i expected some advanced things. But there were very little of those. Only 2 or 3. My brother is 11 and my sister is 9 and they were bored there too. There was very little outdoors. Mini golf was suppose to be interesting but all the holes were clogged with leaves and dirt. I was really exited about Tesla's machines exhibit they have there, but only...Read More

There was very little outdoors. Mini golf was suppose to be interesting but all the holes were clogged with leaves and dirt. I was really exited about Tesla's machines exhibit they have there, but only one machine was working. There wasn't anyone explaining and talking about the machines or Tesla himself. So I am disappointed.
