About this activity

Kids, it's time to discover just how fun science can be at the Liberty Science Center - are you ready for a day of adventure, discovery and FUN? Liberty Science Center is home to a number of hands-on, interactive exhibits that each focus on teaching kids something new. Here, they can learn through play, and all exhibits encourage those inquisitive minds to experiment, touch, discover and well, have a great time!

Kids can use those senses to navigate an 80ft crawl space - all in pitch black! Exploring an unknown environment in the dark allows kids to really realize how much we rely on sight to move through the world.

Active kids can use up that energy in the Infinity Climber, where they can climb, crawl, and balance their way through the world' first suspended climbing play space of it's kind! It's the climbing gym for the 21st century!

Uncover fascinating creatures that use their natural adaptations to survive in the world, with REAL animals in the Be or Be Eaten exhibit, including naked mole rats, cotton-top tamarin monkeys, and lead-cutter ants!

See microbes in a whole new way as you step inside a stunning space and discover a glowing gallery of microbial art, and explore different emotions in the Dream Machine, where bicycle pumps produce combinations of sounds, colors and scents (not all good either!)

Future engineers will be in their element at Block Party, where if they can imagine it - they can build it, or tour a storm-resistant, energy-efficient beach house!

Wildlife is also features even more at the Liberty Science Center at Our Hudson Home exhibit, exploring the complex relationships in the Hudson River's ecosystem, and even meet some creatures who call it home!

A day of discovery, play, wonder, excitement - where you never know what you just might uncover next! It's all happening at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey!
