4 floors of great activities for kids. We came with 2 kids (4 and 6 yo) and a baby.
The kids had a great time!
Even though it was a very busy day, we didn't have to wait to long for some of the attractions.

People were very friendly and helpful, plenty of things to do to keep kids busy prices on the food court are a little too expensive though

Liberty Science Center is a great destination if you have small children and want an interactive educational experience for them. Most of the exhibits skew towards an elementary age range. If you are looking for more than surface level exhibits on the human body, zoology, environmentalism, or energy then this might not be the place for you.

The Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium is much the same. While the faculty is top notch, the program consists primarily of elementary level information.

If you decide to take in a show at the Planetarium, make sure you arrive early. They operate on a first come, first serve basis regardless even if you purchased advanced tickets. Once the doors to the Planetarium close, no one may enter.

If you choose to go on a holiday, be prepared for the place to be mobbed.

It was very busy on a Saturday morning but the kids in our group enjoyed themselves. There are activities for toddlers up to children of all ages. I even learned some things in the energy section.

The aquariums were especially interesting.
