  • This place is great for kids. I enjoyed it as an adult. So many interactive things to play with. I didn't enjoy the big bird movie, but my son did.

  • Great spot for kids, both old and young. We visited while passing through the area. Tickets were kind of pricey for a one-off visit but I imagine an annual membership would easily pay for itself. Four floors of hands-on activities for children. Older kids will appreciate the explanations and science information for each exhibit. Younger kids will just have fun running around and playing with all the "toys." The planetarium is phenomenal and definitely worth the extra ticket. Truly impressive.
  • Liberty science center has great variety of exhibits. I can spend hours here and membership is worth it if you will come more than 2 times. Adult nights are the best. Its such a great group of people. I love to be able to dance, have drinks, explore the museum without kids and see unique planetarium shows like beer in space!
