    I loved the interactive area, great way to learn new things. My favorites are the foot arch test which determines the arch of your feet as well as the walking efficiency (calories burned while walkin)

    I kinda feel like science museums are really just reflagged kids museums. Regardless, our kids had a blast with the experiments and displays. Worth a visit.

    It's not what I remember as a kid on field trips. There seem to be fewer interactive exhibits, and more words written on posters you're supposed to read. It's definitely not worth the huge cost.

    The membership is absolutely worth it. $80/year and regular admission for adults is $20-ish, which means the membership is already paid after 4 (solo) trips in a year or 2 (duo) trips in a year.

    Treat yourself to an amazing show at the planetarium. It is not to be missed and is a lot of fun. Their advanced 'Death Star' projector is able to project more than 9,000 stars onto their screen.

    I wouldn't say give it a miss entirely, but if you're heading to New York then don't bother 'cause the contents of this museum pale in comparison to the behemoth Museum of Natural History there.
