The Liberty Science Center is even more exciting than I remember from when I was a kid. With four floors of exciting hands on exhibits, guests of all ages are kept busy and fascinated for hours on end.
The Museum is divided into sections with exhibits that are correlating to their themes. There is a section on energy, and another on the different species found within the Hudson River, including a touch tank where children learn about and can touch star fish, clams and other species found locally. The Infection Connection area teaches all about infections and disease. The Touch Tunnel is both spooky and fun where you see if you can leave the pitch black tunnel just by feeling the way out.
The Infinity Climber is suspended 35 feet in the air and is lots of fun to climb through. The section showing real live animals in their habitat is a bonus. The Skyscraper section teaches all you need to know about planning and constructing skyscrapers. Visitors can also try walking across a beam 18 feet above the ground. There are so many more exhibits that are just simply too numerous to enumerate. Go visit and see for yourself.
