  • This place is fantastic! The room for little ones is the best. My son could play there for hours. And the entire museum is so interesting and hands on. Wonderful place!!
  • This place is great for kids. Parents if you need 3 hours to decouple yourself, bring the grandparents and reclaim your sanity fur just a few hours. NYC ID has a program where you can get free family membership for a year. Sun 10-11am is free admission.
  • Many exhibits broken, fees for almost everything. Could use some general maintenance, raking leaves outside so exhibits function, fix broken exhibits many were completely broken and useless. was interesting but could have been so much better and worth the charges.
  • This is my favorite museum in New York. Most of the exhibits are hands-on and every time I go there's always something new. Great place for the entire family. Make sure you don't miss any demos. I also suggest you make time for the design labs and the science playground.
  • Great place to come with the family. If u dont like load and pushing kids you'll be in for a treat cuz this place is loaded with them. You've be warned. None the less its great, lots of exhibits, activities, and educational reading. Its also free in friday from 2pm to 5
