Fun day with grandson

Great place to take young ones and learn. A few of the exhibits in the curious George exhibit were not working which was quite disappointing.

My husband and I took our son to Liberty Science Center last weekend and he enjoyed it. He loved it when he was 4, but now that he is a few years older he's a little young for some parts and a little old for others so didn't enjoy it as much as in the past. It's a lot of... More

Went for my son's 6th birthday, and he loved it. He didn't even realize he was learning and playing at the same time 🖒. I especially liked how they had different themes on science.. I mean.. who would think that Curious George would be a part of science? It's so many cool hands on activities.. that I don't wanna give... More

Don't come here unless you enjoy busloads of unsupervised middle school children running around, pushing and shoving everyone both inside the museum and in the parking lot. I only saw three yellow school buses. Image if there were more!!! The sounds of children screaming coming from those buses was enough to make your skin crawl. I came with my two... More

We took a trip to the liberty science in May and it was amazing!! We learned and saw a lot of interesting things. The voyage through the Titanic was breathtaking and there was an actual mimic of an iceberg that you could touch. It's a great place for everyone.

Went on a Sunday in August. Parking was $7. The kids had a blast (boys aged 5 & 7). There are 4 floors with plenty to see and do. We even took them to the Bodies exhibit and they were so intrigued by what they saw. It was great for them to see the inside of the body, bones, muscles,... More

Daughters, Carole and Marcia planned the day for my Birthday. It had been many years since our last visit to the Liberty Science Center and we were not disappointed. The highlights for us were the "Bodies Revealed" exhibit, and "A Beautiful Planet",presented in the IMAX Dome Theater. The "Cotton Top Tamarins seemed curious of us as we were about them.... More
