Explore the most unique maze you'll find this fall: the Spider Maze!
One of the most popular autumn experiences at Liberty Science Center, the Spider Maze is a (NOT scary!) 4,000-sq-ft maze of epic proportions. As you make your way through the webby maze, you'll solve a puzzle and learn about different types of spiders while enjoying a beautiful view of the NYC skyline.
Put on a doctor’s lab coat, pick up a stethoscope, and perform check-ups on toys at LSC’s newest exhibit for young learners, Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit!
Based on Disney Junior’s award-winning TV series Doc McStuffins, the exhibit transports kids and families from Liberty Science Center to Doc’s backyard clinic and the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, families are invited to help Doc perform check-ups in the ER, groom toy pets at the Pet Vet, feed baby toys in the nursery, and so much more.
Use your senses to navigate an 80-foot, crawl-through pitch-black tunnel in one of LSC's most legendary exhibitions. Exploring an unknown environment in the dark makes you realize how much we rely on sight to move through the world.
Climb, crawl and balance your way through the world's first suspended climbing play space of its kind.
With multiple routes to explore and pathways that go as high as 35 feet above the floor, the Infinity Climber is a thrilling climbing gym for the 21st century!
Meet fascinating creatures that use their natural adaptations to survive in the world.
Eat and Be Eaten is filled with real animals, including naked mole rats, cotton-top tamarin monkeys, and leaf-cutter ants, that have adapted in amazing ways to survive in the wild.
Could you survive as a wild animal living among streets, sidewalks, and sewers? Find out at Wildlife Challenge. Trust your animal instincts as you confront the same tests urban wildlife face every day. Are you up to the challenge?
Explore different emotions in this interactive, sensory adventure!
The Dream Machine, created by multimedia artist Emilie Baltz, debuted at New York's Panorama Festival, but now it has a permanent home at LSC. Use bicycle pumps to produce combinations of colors, sounds, and scents – some pleasant, some unpleasant.
Create your own engineering challenge in Block Party, an LSC original exhibition. If you can imagine it, you can build it!
In Blue Block Park create a tower, bridge, or city with oversized blue foam blocks. In the Tot Lot find plenty of classic wooden block sets to stack up, knock down, and stack up again. What will you create?
Take a tour of this storm-resistant, energy-efficient beach house, designed by Stevens Institute of Technology students and winner of the 2015 Scholar Decathlon sponsored by the US Department of Energy.
Make your mark on our giant wall installation made of 952 pixel dials, each containing more than 1,000 possible combinations, which you rotate to "turn on" different colors. Leave behind a fun image or pattern!
The Hudson River is home to thousands of species, and serves as a means of travel and commerce, a source of food, and a place to stay.
In Our Hudson Home, you'll explore the complex relationships in this ecosystem and even meet some of the creatures who reside there.
Skyscrapers are among the ultimate achievements in engineering.
In this exhibition, you'll learn about skyscrapers' effects on culture, the environment, and even local weather patterns.
Feeling bold? Put on a safety harness and walk on a narrow steel beam 18 feet above the floor!
Hundreds of scissor-like connectors expand and contract this globe that has welcomed millions of guests to LSC for more than 20 years.
See the sphere hard at work, and then make your way to the upper mezzanine area to learn more about artist and engineer Chuck Hoberman's creation.
The perfect exhibition for young learners! Kids can learn, play, discover, and get curious in our exhibition filled with hands-on activities designed to bring out the natural scientist among all children.
I Explore is also the location of our daily interactive We Explore adventure series.
Energy comes in many forms, and by understanding how energy is generated, we can begin to develop ways to live more efficiently. How can we balance our ever-growing energy needs with environmental impacts?
In Energy Quest, learn how we explore and harness energy from various sources, and how we use it.
Experience the wonder and joy of science in our exhibition filled with playful hands-on experiments for all ages.
Climb a rock wall to test out friction. Toss a ball into an airstream to see the magic of flight. Make a six-foot-wide soap bubble! There's an activity around every corner in Wonder Why.
The third floor hallway is buzzing with excitement. Learn about the surprisingly high-tech world of bee science, and peer inside our honey bee hive to see real bees at work, busily building honeycomb and making honey.
Check out some of Hubble's greatest hits in this gallery-style presentation of eye-catching, oversized prints.
Don't be afraid to get close and take a selfie with some of the most gorgeous sights in the universe!
From cave drawings to social media, humans have always communicated to share information. In this exhibition, investigate all the ways we express ourselves: written, spoken, gestural, symbolic, electronic, digital and more.
In Infection Connection, see how the choices we make every day contribute to the spread of infectious diseases.
Explore the connections between humans, microbes, and emerging diseases. Discover how science develops tools and technologies to prevent and treat infections. Conduct microbiology and epidemiology experiments in our hands-on lab.
Explore the science of extremely small things! Hands-on activities present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of nanotechnology.
