Everything you have to know before you visit Liberty Science Center in Jersey City


Since Summer is going to end soon, I'm trying to take my 7 years old daughter to as many interesting places as I can, before she goes to second grade and starts her busy school year. On Tuesday, we visited Liberty Science Center __ Interactive science museum and learning center located in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey (right across Manhattan).

Liberty Science Center, Jersey City



Liberty Science Center Admission Prices:

Science Center Admission __ Adult = $22.75     Child (age 2-12) = $18.75
Combination Pass (Admission + Grossology or one theater show) __ Adult = $28.75  Child = $23.75
Premium Pass (Admission+ Grossology + one theater show) __  Adult = $32.75   Child = $26.75

Museum is open every day from 9:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M.

Despite our plan to go to the museum early to avoid standing in long lines, we made to the building only at around 11:00 A.M. but we were lucky, it was not crowdy at all. I decided to buy premium tickets so that we would have access to every excibition in the building, including one Planetarium show and also, the premium Excibition __ Grossology.  We chose the show To Worlds Beyond  that was a full-dome movie about journey through the Solar System with an interactive live presentation.   The movie incorporated the latest information about the solar system. It was very impressive.

After that, we went on 4th floor to explore the exhibitions. First we saw Pixel Art that was a giant wall installation made of 952 pilfer dials, each containing more than 1,000 possible color combinations, wich you could rotate to 'turn on' different colors. You can imagine how fun it could be.

Then, we decided to see Grossology __ Liberty Science Center's premium exhibition about all things gross about the human body.  I know, it might sound gross, but it was actually fun for kids to crawl and climb through the human body, play games that revealed all the secrets of vomit, odors, boogers, heart and more.

This interactive gentleman was teaching kids what happans inside the nose when you catch cold, while throwing a huge 'booger' out of his nose, time to time (gross, haha)



One of the excibitions my daughetr enjoyed was Infinity Climber __ the world's first suspended climbing play space of its kind. According to Liberty Science Center, the structure itself measures 26 feet wide, 24 feet deep, and 19 feet tall. It is surrounded by 19 miles of hand-threaded wire that forms a protective mesh to prevent climbers from falling to the ground below. It includes multiple routes to explore.

We also enjoyed Eat and Be Eaten exhibition that was filled with real animals.

Dream Machine, Dino Dig and Our Hudson Home were also very interesting. Dream Machine was an interactive, sensory exhibition, you had to use bicycle pumps to produce combinations of colors, sounds, and scents (my favorite part) __ some pleasant, some unpleasant. My favorite was Shame station that smelled heavenly.

Our Hudson Home exhibition was very exiting because from 3:30 P.M. kids got to touch scertain type of fish. We also say how they fed fish.



Obviously I can't talk about every exhibition in one post but as you can guess, it was absolutely worth to visit Liberty Science Center, otherwise why would we spend there 6 hours? haha.

Have you been to this museum yet? What was your favorite exhibition?

Stay fabulous!

The Liberty Science Center looks pretty cool - big plus that it's an opportunity to learn more about science and potentially aim for the field. Oh man, the exhibits look really interesting.
