  • We had a birthday party here and everything was really good from kids perspective as well as parents. The food was good and arrangements were perfect. There is so much to do inside and outside that one can easily spend a full day here. They keep on changing their exhibits. Must see if you have kids. And the planetarium is definitely worth going.
  • Today is our second visit to Liberty Science Center. Last time we went for the Lego show and Dino dig and we had a great time. This time it was the Dinosaur Train and Fall Festival, which was equally good. The center seems to have different exhibitions each month that offer different knowledge and experience. Today there is the "human flying show", which is pretty cool.
