    Very amazing museum, best I've been to! I would recommend the IMAX and Lightening Shows, they're insanely awesome! The food there is great at the Cafe, along with friendly volunteers and staff!

    Over a decade ago, the US Department of Energy installed a wind turbine at LSC to demonstrate the feasibility of using wind as a source of energy in urban areas. Check it out from the 4th floor deck.

    This zany science museum is home to the first Hoberman sphere. Though geared toward littles (the calendar is packed with interactive learning events), it brings out the childish nerd in any adult.

    An excellent place for kids to run around and learn about science. Great views of Lower Manhattan are an added plus.

    Do NOT do the interactive movie. A DVD movie carried to a classroom(theater) and played for you to watch a child's movie. The most interaction you get is putting the seat down to sit.

    $7 parking even for members since lot is not owned by the center.. But overall, a good value for the kids! Plenty of fun learning. Place is huge!

    Long lines and big crowds on rainy days. You can skip the line by buying tix on your phone and pick them up at the welcome counter IF you can navigate their mobile site.

    Start at the top and work your way down. See an IMAX movie. The cafe is a bit expensive as you might expect, but a nice selection beyond burgers and pizza. Read more

    When in the Skyscraper exhibit, make sure you know the difference between the Curtain Wall Test and the Wind Tunnel Lab. Curtain Wall is the one you go in and sit!

    Definitely take the time to watch an IMAX or 3D movie, but check show times before you come; they're different weekend vs weekday.

    Membership is great. After a visit it two, it's paid for & makes it easy to bring a friend or if family is visiting.

    Afternoon crowds due to school trips can make this a madhouse and lines at exhibits like touch tunnel absurd

    KIDTIP: If you live in Hoboken or JC near the light rail with a toddler then get Membership. Much cheaper than Kidville and Nanny can go.

    Weekdays are best - weekends are crowded. Place is huge though, plenty to do either way.

    4 floors of amazing science and entertainment. Try to walk the I-Beam on the 1st floor. It's scary.

    Show up a half hour before you want to actually get in. It takes that long to buy tickets.
